This piece is created with oil paint on artistic canvas using my unique technique of a palette knife. The artwork has texture, you can feel the strokes by touching the painting. By purchasing on this site, you are buying directly from the artist Leonid Afremov. I guarantee your satisfaction and the best customer experience.

about this painting:



How often have you found yourself in a relationship that is not as exciting and romantic as it used to be in the beginning? It seemed that you just have not met your person yet, but years after years, love story after love story… And you are again at a square one.

How accurate is that for you? Without any doubt, we all have experienced something similar. However, by simply changing your attitude, you could have given your relationship a totally new unexpected turn.

One of the most popular reasons why people break up is that at least one person in a couple thinks that he or she is not appreciated and loved anymore. It may not be true at all, but once two hearts distance from each other, it is hard to get them back to the initial position.

American phycologists have conducted an experiment in the end of 1990s. They asked the participants – married couples of couples in long-term relationships – to behave as if they were madly in love with each other for a month. They encouraged them to have romantic dates, text and sext each other, bring gifts and try to pleasantly surprise their partner in any possible way. After a month, all this couples confesses that their feelings are back and they have never been happier!


Leonid Afremov is an extremely romantic person who has been married for more than 40 years. His family life is full of love and respect from both spouses. They also have two sons who are now grown ups and help their father with his business.

For Afremov, presenting to his wife a surprise bouquet of bright and wonderfully smelling flowers that you can see on this painting is a natural way to show his love and appreciation. You can find more information about their love story in the section “Afremov Bio” and see for your self that their youth together was not at all easy.

  • Yellow,
  • orange
  • and red flower

-buds represent joy of life and pleasant moments shared together. Colors are extremely important in the language of flowers.

This painting is one of the most successful works by Leonid Afremov from a prospective of technique. He usually uses palette knife to apply oil paint on canvas giving it texture and depth. Oil paint has a great expressive potential and obediently follows Afremov’s ideas.

On this painting, the artist manages to unite fleetingness and lightness of the strokes with juicy thick textures. Due to that, the bouquet and the vase look extremely three dimensional and realistic.

So why not remind to your better half how much you appreciate him or her and not present them a meaningful and touching gift? It can be a pretty bouquet or a painting by a famous artist… If you feel that your relationship is not the same anymore, do something to change it and add some fire, and you will immediately see the results!
