about this painting:


Air of love

There is no place on earth like Venice, with its endless water surfaces, hundreds of gondolas floating back and forth, majestic cathedrals and remarkable squares. It is the most desirable dream for any traveler and the strongest image in the memory of those who have at least once visited this city. Couples and newlyweds long for Venice, attracted by its romantic air and exquisite sights. Who can resist the temptation of exploring all these beautiful places and cozy nooks and keeping them in mind wherever you are?

Lifelong record      

Everyone wants to take a small particle of Venice with them and feast their eyes upon it at home. Postcards, souvenirs, woodwork, photos – there is something for any taste and purpose. Artworks can also make your memories immortal. You can look for a suitable one in an artworks journals or search for it in the Internet.

“Venice – Pigeons on San Marco Square” by Leonid Afremov captures the brightest symbol of Venice on canvas, forcing you to return to the place again and again in your thoughts.  When you look at the painting, you get an uncontrolled urge to set out on a walk to Saint Mark’s Cathedral, the most dazzling example of Byzantine architecture in Venice. The artist managed to convey the magnificence of the exterior basilica and the square through vivid strokes of paint applied with a palette knife. The festive colors and airy look of the scene give you a calm, relaxed mood.

The beauty of composition

·         The foreground of the picture is speckled with dozens of pigeons – the symbol of peace, love and strong marriage for many nations. These birds are also associated with the Holy Spirit in Christianity.

·         In the middle, we can see crowds of people gathering round Saint Mark’s Basilica as if willing to dissolve in its great walls keeping the secrets of the saints.

·         Saint Mark’s Basilica is the focal point of the canvas. It invites you to scrutinize every little detail of the church: rounded portals, lavish mosaics, marble columns and stone sculptures.

The photos online don't do justice to actually having the paintings in hand. The colors are vivid and the texture is amazing!! We purchased Rain's Rustle and Melody of the Night.

I've just discovered your art and it is truly amazing. You envision the world in all of these phenomenal colors and feelings. I wish I could see or feel these. I will hopefully one day be able to buy a piece of your work. Until then I will try and find a print. Anyway I just wanted to say thank you for showing me the world from a more hopeful and fantastic view. Wishing you all the best for a Merry Christmas and a wicked new year!
