about this painting:
WANDER AFTER THE RAIN
Do you enjoy walking along half-desolate streets after a heavy rain? You can still feel the smell of wet earth and moisture in the air, as if droplets of water have penetrated into every smallest particle and are not going to evaporate. This kind of promenade has something special also because of the impression of cleanness you get: sappy green trees and bushes look regenerated and full of ultimate strength, roads and streets are finally free from mud and rubbish. All these details make you feel new-born and contented with what your life is, despite all the difficulties and obstacles in your way.
You can experience the same emotions when you look at “Wander after the Rain” by Leonid Afremov, a famous Jewish impressionist of modern days. The painting is made in oil with a palette knife. Thick dabs of paint, all of different color, create a vivid patchwork that pulls you inside the scene. The artist was able to catch the smallest detail and the mood of the scene. He managed to impart so much life to the picture by adding succulent colors and opulent light effects. One of the focal points of the artwork is the lamppost illuminating the street. There are several lanterns and their reflections add to the radiant glare that comes from the canvas. This brilliant light is transmitted to the viewer as well, filling your heart with joy and peace.
