about this painting:


Transition of seasons

Each season is charming in its own way, but there is hardly a more inspiring time of the year than the beginning of spring. When everything around you starts waking up after a long winter sleep, it’s hard to stay away from this feast of life. First leaves and buds appearing on trees and bushes, new juices running through their green veins and formidable vibrations coming from the sun-warmed ground make us feel joyful and full of energy. And even if the lawns are still covered with snow and the branches are naked and cold, you know that it won’t be long until the landscape changes beyond recognition. This magical moment when nature breaks free from the icy chains of winter and starts a new cycle of life is depicted in Leonid Afremov’s painting ‘The Beginning of Spring.’

Nature revival

The picture shows a spectacular scenery: graceful in their nudity, the trees stand motionless and solemn amidst a snow-covered glade divided by a swift stream running through the forest. Although winter still holds on to this piece of land, the snow already starts melting and the icy crust can no longer curb the precipitous flow of water. And while the forest sees its last frosty dreams, spring paves the way for a green carpet of grass and young saplings waiting to rise from their earth cradle. Close arrival of spring can be seen in the vibrant palette chosen by the artist who added warm golden light in the background and sprinkled the stream with colorful reflections dancing along its length. Very soon the last drifts of snow will disappear revealing sodden ground covered with first green sprouts and the forest will explode with voices of birds. But for now we will enjoy this magical moment of silence before the loud entrance of spring!

Amazing room design choice

This delicate and mysterious landscape will look great in your interior:

  • Hang it in the living room to create a bright spot on the wall.
  • Add it to your bedroom décor for a calm, relaxing atmosphere.
  • Take it to your office for inspiration.

Whatever option you choose, the bright colors and dreamy mood of the picture will be to the point in any room. Looking at it, you will remember that even the coldest of days will finally be gone giving way to new aspirations and positive emotions. And then, regardless of the time of the year, it will always be the beginning of spring in your home!

I've just received two of your paintings (Farewell to Anger & The Loneliness of Autumn) as a birthday gift from my wonderful husband. This is the absolute best gift I've ever received. Your art is my favorite art of all time. I even have a board of your paintings on Pinterest. In fact, my Facebook cover and profile pictures are your beautiful artwork. Thank you for all the incredible work that you do.

I previously posted that I had just discovered your amazing art and was unable to afford any of it, at least for the time being. I had mentioned that I would look for a print in the mean time. Today I received an e-mail for a site that is all affordable prints. Luckily I was given a gift card for Christmas and I will be able to afford one of the small prints.I am so excited to be able to own a print of your amazing pieces of art. I am often stuck in my bed for long periods of time and I know that being able to see the print on my wall with all of the vibrant colors and beautiful scenes will have a very positive impact on my mood and mind. Now the only problem is picking just one.I hope that if there is anyone else in my financial situation that you find this helpful.
