 about this painting:


Since the dawn of times

Throughout its history, mankind has always expressed itself through art. This unique and wonderful method of analyzing and reshaping reality is what helped us evolve and thrive. Each kind of art has its own charm and its own ways to reach out to our souls:


  1. One of the most mysterious and unfathomable art types invented by humanity is music because it operates with pure abstractions. When we hear a sequence of sounds combined into one harmonious tune, our brain generates a whole slew of associations. That’s why we perceive music so intimately and that’s why it has such a great impact on us.
  2. Literature, on the other hand, is more familiar and understandable to us. To make music, you need a certain set of inborn abilities, while words is an instrument we all use. Choosing the right words and connecting them in a certain manner, writers appeal to our senses, they make a scene they describe alive in our mind.
  3. There is yet another type of art that deserves our close attention and it’s dancing. Way back at the dawn of our civilization, our distant ancestors knew no words or other means of expressing their emotions. The only language they could use for that was body language. And up until now dancing remains one of the most popular kinds of art in the world.

This marvelous picture by Leonid Afremov shows not only the beauty of oil painting, but also the beauty of the dance captured in bright strokes of the palette knife.

Dancing or flying?

The canvas shows a graceful ballerina frozen in a gorgeous flight. Holding the entire weight of her body on a tiptoe, she leans forward and sways her hands as if trying to push off the floor and soar up into the air. Her light white dress underlines her tender silhouette and seems to be fluttering with every move. When we look at this amazing portrait, we feel inspired by the beauty of oil painting and the grace of the dance. It can become a wonderful decoration for your apartment that will add color and exquisiteness to your interior.

I have Just put up 'When dreams come true', 'Colorful night' and 'Moment of Truth' and have two more at the framers! Afremov's art is joyous and beautiful, so vibrant. I love it. The process of buying has been easy and the communication and delivery has been fantastic. Amazing value and I am quickly running out of wall space.

A little while I go I received the painting I ordered: "When Dreams Come True" and it is absolutely beautiful. Seeing it in person cannot compare to the picture. It is already framed and on my wall and every time I look at it I become completely captivated!! I fall in love with it all over again. Leonid Afremov is an amazing artist, his paintings caught my attention the moment I saw them. I'm so happy to have one of them in my home!! I have no complains with the service. They gave me all the appropriate information and details. When I sent a message with a question it was answered swiftly and clearly. The painting was sent in the time frame they told me it would and it arrived exactly on the day they said it would. So I'm really happy with the service in general. I'm already looking into buy another one, It is just so difficult to chose!! Their are so many beautiful painting from where to choose!
