about this painting:


Meetings in our lives

Our life is very dynamic. Every day we meet different people of all sorts – friends, relatives, colleagues, acquaintances and strangers. Some of them are dear to us; others are just by-passers whom we forget the next moment they disappear around the corner. People always bring us different emotions – we can admire someone’s beauty, smile to a pretty kid, overheard a joke or feel sorry about a disabled person or a beggar. How many important meetings in your life were planned and how many were unexpected?  Just think about it: what if we paid more attention to them, how could they change our lives?

Strangers or not?

On the canvas, we see an evening park lit by numerous streetlamps. Their light plays in the thickness of tree leafage resembling fireworks that came down from the sky. Streetlights are everywhere, they are vividly reflected in the puddles on the alley. We can see people on the road that are hurrying somewhere under the pouring rain. How many times did you hide under your umbrella and miss the happy opportunities that were sent to you? Those two women noticed each other despite their brollies. Will this meeting end up with a friendly chat in a small café, or maybe they stopped just to greet each other or simply to ask the time? The artist doesn’t give us the answer – we should find it on our own. Feeling oneself part of the story is probably the most intriguing peculiarity of this painting.

Love your Paintings
Dear Leonid I just custom cleared the two paintings I ordered and I must say they are beautiful and well worth the wait. So much so that today I ordered another one. True I think that when one experiences your art one would inevitably want more! Thank you for sharing your art with us. I wish you and all your loved ones a Healthy & Peaceful New Year 2018. Monica

I'm a retired jazz trombonist. The essence of jazz is improvisation. Improvisation is the ability to look at a thing from a different perspective each time you look at it. That is what the pallet knife wielding Mr. Leonid Afremov does with his recreations. I have the pleasure of waking each morning and looking up the rain swept street of "The Loneliness of Autumn" and wondering where my road may take each day. I wasn't prepared for the blaze of color or the depth of feeling when I tore the boxing open at delivery even though I had looked at the painting on the internet dozens of times before purchasing. It was like seeing and hearing Louis Armstrong in person for the first time after just listening to him on recordings. Some times it even awakens the urge to pick up my horn and blow a few choruses straight at the painting expecting it to blow a chorus or two back at me. The man is a magician.
