about this painting:


There is a phenomenon in psychology called suppressed memories. It’s when a memory of some event or scene is squeezed out of your consciousness because it’s no longer important or because you don’t want to think of it. But when the trigger connected to that memory appears in your sight again, this suppressed scene comes back and old emotions pour in from the distant corners of your mind. This is probably what happened to the hero of this painting when he suddenly found himself in a place from his past. Let’s follow him and see where his path eventually leads him!

Colorful nostalgia

A nice painting caresses the eye with lovely colors and harmonious composition. A good painting intrigues us with a story. This fascinating canvas by Leonid Afremov also implies a kind of story.  It doesn’t have any beginning or ending, the characters don’t have names and there is no hint of a plot to connect different chapters. In fact, we are only offered one fragment of it, but that’s enough for us to start making up our own storyline. Each of us Is free to come up with one’s own version of who this man is and what this place means to him:

-    Perhaps he just returned to the city of his childhood and is now heading to the house where he grew up?

-    Or maybe his first love used to live in this building and, just like many years ago, he is now walking past her windows in a hope to see her face there?

-    He may even be walking down this street for the first time, but it might look familiar to him and remind him of some other important place.

A painting with a good ending

Are the memories that spring up in the head of our hero as he walks through that scenery good or bad? Judging from the palette and style used by the artist, they are mostly happy, perhaps with a pinch of sweet sadness. The weather isn’t that inspiring and there are some dark colors on the canvas, but other hues are predominantly vibrant and cheerful, and the man is heading into a spot of shining light, so we hardly have to worry about his future fate. But that doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to him! This marvelous palette knife painting that can be ordered online on our site will always raise your mood and keep pleasant memories alive before your eyes!
