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.
This piece of modern art is painted in Leonid Afremov’s unique style that includes the following:
· Vibrant colors that give you the feeling of excitement every time you look at them.
