about this painting:


I’ll do my crying in the rain      

Your associations with the rain can be different, depending on your character and attitude towards this weather. Cynics wrap up tighter in their raincoats and hide behind the black fabric of their umbrellas. Dreamers sit on the windowsill with a cup of fragrant coffee. Lovers enjoy holding hands and strolling under warm drops of summer sprinkle. Creative people find their inspiration in vague streams on the wet glass and muffled tapping against the roof. It is a perfect time for a light melancholy when the weather seems to be crying with you. And most of us, regardless of our social status and occupation, believe that any rain will end with vibrant rainbow symbolizing a new better start. This marvelous painting by Leonid Afremov seems to incorporate every of these moods.

Mystery in the street

Night city covered by the rain: what can be more intriguing? Blurred signboards, wet houses and bright reflections in numerous puddles… You eye gets lost in this whirlpool of colors. It seems that streams of water have washed away everyone. But there are two people in the street, and if you look attentively, you may notice that their routs will meet at the crossroads. Is it just a trivial coincidence, or is it a sign from the sky that this man and woman are meant to run into each other under the pouring rain? Leonid Afremov never stops after just depicting beautiful scenery, he tries to say something to his admirers. Maybe, the message of the painting is that you should always wait for a miracle. What if it finds you unexpectedly, in the heart of a storm?

An amazing artist!
I wanted to write this review for a long time. I purchased a painting from Mr. Afremov 3 months ago, I was really anxious about seeing it and finally, when that day arrived I wasn't disappointed. First of all, it was huge! I was expecting something really small but, it was a beautiful surprise. The colors... OMG. It looked even better than the photographs from the website. I had an extra petition for Mr. Afremov about a detail I wanted to change from the original painting. He agreed and the result was simply beautiful. Thank you for this amazing painting and thank you and your family for allowing us to follow your work online.

I purchased the Eric Clapton portrait oil painting, however, I received a painting that is significantly different from the one that is advertised. The painting I received does not look like Eric Clapton.
