about this painting:


Love theme in Leonid Afremov art

Love is an inexplicable phenomenon that remains a mystery despite the fervent efforts of scientists to find a logical ground for this feeling. It is a great driving force that keeps the world spinning. Is it any wonder that the love theme is one of the most frequently used motifs of Leonid Afremov paintings?


  • It has different faces and characters.
  • It appears in an autumn park, in a rainy town, on a solitary street.
  • It floats in the air, rustles in golden leaves and flutters amidst tender rose petals.
  • It walks along picturesque alleys among strangers and happy couples.
  • It hides under the red umbrella, dances on the lit pavement near a night café, lingers in the marvelous aroma of beautiful wild flowers.

Pictures by Leonid Afremov are literally soaked with love, and it can’t remain unnoticed! In the charming still life here the artist tried to convey this feeling by depicting a sensual bouquet of asters reminiscent of summer warmth and autumn melancholy at the same time.

Asters and feelings

Still life art is often symbolic. And asters, an ancient symbol of undersense, are frequent guests on floral paintings created by the artist. These flowers symbolize a wide spectrum of feelings – from irrepressible passion to soft tenderness. The colors of flowers depicted on the canvas prove this thought. Angelically white, soft pink, sunny yellow, mysteriously lilac, hot orange and passionate red colors form a unique and mezmerizing palette that immediately pulls you into this whirlpool of fragrance. Faintly visible green leaves and muted hues of evening light complement the ambience of intimacy and pure, unveiled feelings.

Flowers with an autumn character

Why did the artist chose to depict asters, among the entire variety of flowers existing in nature? What makes them so special to him? Asters are ambassadors of autumn. They keep memories of warm summer with its bright colors and happy moods. The vivid, colorful and joyful atmosphere of this season can be felt in their sun-like petals glaring with dozens of warm tones. Asters are the first flowers coming out in early autumn. This season still pleases us with friendly weather but frequent cold rains and cloudy sky remind us that days of warmth are almost over.

Asters have the same tricky character: their beautiful petals of violet, reddish and golden colors have sharp, prickly tips .The duality of this floral image mirrors the duality of the autumn season and the feeling of love. This precious feeling never remains the same. It mutates, changes images and roles, colors and sounds, weathers and seasons, but always returns to our hearts as summer returns one day to give birth to a new autumn with its marvelous star-like flowers.

Keep this evanescent beauty alive on your wall by decorating it with this amazing floral canvas by Leonid Afremov! If you want to download the digital version of the still life, Rutor, Utorrent and Deviantart are some of the websites to look at.

I received my first painting today (Love by the lake). The estimated delivery date was actually at the end of February, however, I got it much earlier. Beautiful painting, and I cannot wait to put on my wall :) Thank you so much Mr. Afremov!! :)

This was a wonderful experience for me and I am definitely planning to purchase more in the future. I purchased a Misty Mood painting, which was wonderful except an incredibly small flaw. I emailed them, and within a couple hours they offered to send me a replacement or a completely new painting at no cost. I chose to have a new one sent to me and within a week it arrived at my apt. Truly great service to accompany such wonderful paintings.

Pride of Place
My first Leonid Afremov painting arrived today and it is already hanging pride of place in my front room. Rain's Rustle 2 was my purchase and I really appreciate the information sent to me about the transition from start to finish. I was a little worried about the painting travelling all this way and arriving intact but it was very well packaged and even though the outer box showed two rips (and I was worried) all was ok. The painting arrived about 28 days from initial ordering but considering it is painted from scratch for me, it was well worth waiting for. Thank you for a wonderful painting. I hope to return for another in the not too distant future.
