about this painting:


Sunrise magic

Have you ever walked outside in the early hour when the night is already over, but the day hasn’t started yet? Everything is steeped in silence, so profound you can nearly hear trees absorbing water from the depth of the planet with their drowsy roots. Spacious and motionless, the road opens right into the sky where the last stars still twinkle dimly, half-swallowed by the approaching blueness. Bubbling with hundreds of dreams that simmer under their roofs, the sleeping houses take in the morning chill through the dark pores of their windows, ready to reset the day and drop off the first loading of people into the stillness of the empty streets. The city savors its last quiet minutes before exploding with life.

Road into the sun

Out in the park, everything is filled with soft golden light. It seems to swell among the trees like yeast gaining splendor every minute and igniting the leaves with surreal shades that make you think of fairies and dryads. You can almost hear it, ringing beyond the perceptible range, filling your being with a strange fluttering sensation. There is nothing in the whole world except this unearthly glow, the dance of colors in the air and the black tree trunks accentuating your path into the sunrise. Astonished by the opening view, overpowered by the purity and solemnity of the hour, blinded by the torrent of celestial shine, you keep moving into the very source of this magic instinctively, unable to stop, until you become part of the sun.

The recipe of good mood

Like all paintings by Leonid Afremov, this one strikes us with bright colors and expressive brushwork. Or rather palette knife work, since the artist paints his canvases precisely with that instrument. Applying paint in quick swishy strokes, he creates vivid and cheerful sceneries that will provide you with a daily dose of inspiration and great mood. Some of his favorite themes include:

·         Rainy city streets scintillating with myriads of reflections

·         Night parks filled with wandering lights and enigmatic shadows

·         Poetic autumn landscapes burning with fiery hues

·         Blossoming gardens and green forests in the middle of spring

·         Romantic sea views carrying us to distant shores

I just received "Misty Melody" and was blown away. It is gorgeous! There is an enchanting quality, depth and mystery. The colors are amazing. Every time I look at it, I notice more beauty and detail. I was also delighted with the second painting - a wonderful surprise! This was my first purchase - but not my last. Many thanks!
