Being a world-renowned master, Afremov also deserves to be called one of the best naturalists. He notices the beauty of really ordinary summer mornings and autumn afternoon where no one is usually around to enjoy them because of work or too hot weather.

- Sceneries of the cities he visited
- Still lives with flowers and fruits
- Water paintings
- Animals and pets
- Ballet dancers and musicians
Examples of his art dedicated to these topics you can find on this website. There are also available fore purchase and world-wide free shipping.
The last breath of summer
The famous impressionist created this white bridge painting during one of a long winter nights. The only thing that nourished his inspiration were his memories of beautiful afternoons of the last summer days.
This canvas may provoke a severe nostalgy in those who live in countries of four seasons unlike Brazil or Mexico where Afremov now lives. However, the painter was born in Belarus, an Eastern-European country with hot summers and unbearably long winters. During winter months, it is not so common to spend a lot of time outside because of the cold, so people usually stay at home and dedicate themselves to family and friends or their hobbies. And Leonid Afremov is no exception.
Look at the golden trees behind a stunning white bridge. There are yet some green leaves to be seen, thought summer is quietly giving place to autumn with its cold rains and grey sky. Despite its gloominess, many creative people claim this season to be their favorite one. Watching this painting, you can understand why.
The bridge is reflected in the water, and this reflexion is almost perfect since there is no wind. Unfortunately, no one is around to appreciate this magical scenery.
An autumn forest has something special and mysterious about it. It stays there incredibly still and silent waiting for you to explore its secrets. But be respectful and modest, or it will confuse you and conceal the way out. Treating nature as if it was something from the other world (as indeed it is) will make your lonely walk much more satisfying and fruitful.
Though if there is no forest or park near the place where you live, you can always order incredible oil canvases by Leonid Afremov to bring a little bit more nature into your life.
