about this painting:
Summertime and the living is easy…
Summer entices us with its sunny weather, blooming nature and carefree atmosphere. Just like everything around us, we bloom and rejoice forgetting all our troubles and enjoying every moment of life. However, this extensively wonderful season has one substantial drawback - when it grows so hot that you nearly feel like melting, all that just seemed so fascinating to you suddenly loses its attraction. In a moment, you start feeling sweaty, exhausted and irritated. You don't want anything except hiding in the shade and chilling out. If you got caught in midday heat, you can find rescue by the water. Its invigorating freshness and cheery murmur will quickly cool you off and sort out your spirits. This lovely landscape by Leonid Afremov will take you to a city park with a hospitable pond where you can relax after a tiring walk in the sun and let go of all the thoughts that trouble you.
It’s a quiet and serene hour. The sky is blue and cloudless, the air is permeated with dreamy stillness and even the light breeze hovering over the water barely touches its sleepy surface. All the people are gone, driven away by ruthless glow, and the park is almost empty except for a few lazy walkers. On a day like that, you don’t want to move or think too much. Your mind just flows together with the stream of sun beams, calm and unhurried, taking in everything you see, hear and feel:
- Warm smell of the heated pavement.
- Music of the trees born in the very blueness of the sky.
- Merry flecks of sunlight in the fluttering arch of leaves.
- The motley fuss of dragonflies over the reeds.
- The rippled water mirror where fish swim among clouds…
And even though this pond is now broody and deserted, coated in fuzzy autumn chill, it is still amazingly beautiful and charming! A bit of seasonal melancholy even suits it. This lovely pond painting performed in vivid colors and rich textural strokes will surely make a fabulous addition to your interior! Its exquisite palette, remarkable style and balanced composition will create a cozy, inviting atmosphere in any room and add a little more enticement to bare walls whatever design you are aiming at. So include this wonderful canvas in your home decor and come back to this serene summer pond in any time of the year!
