Day dreaming or night dreaming?
What is your favorite part of the day? I think every hour is brilliant. I like each of them for specific reasons:
- Morning for its freshness and tender sun beams that give their warmth to all living beings.
- Midday because it’s the hottest part of the day (did I mention that I live in Phoenix?)
- Evening that brings coolness and picturesque sunsets that mark the end of a bustling day.
- And of course the romantic mystery of the night that can hide anything – tears of loneliness and loving couples.
I like to stroll along the streets, no matter what time it is, because the same scenery looks different in changing light. I often make sketches during my walks. There is something I haven’t told you yet: my biggest dream is to become a famous painter. I mean, not an illustrator. I want to hear my name in one line with masters of modern art canvas, like Picasso, Monet, Botero and others. I know that may sound too loud, but I sincerely hope my dream will come true.
Who paints the best cityscapes?
Once my friend Rebecca asked me to help her buy abstract canvas art for her living room. She thought a cityscape would be perfect, so we looked through a series of canvas art sets for sale, but our search was in vain before we found a web gallery that belonged to Leonid Afremov. After taking a look at a few paintings, we understood that Leonid is a real master of cityscapes. I was impressed by the way he depicts the city night, the incredible atmosphere that fills the streets at this part of the day. He focuses mainly on the city as it is, so you will hardly find any people in his pictures, but if you do, they will seem so little and insignificant that they won’t distract you from the beauty of the scenery. Paintings by Leonid Afremov are united by a few common traits: empty streets in generous lantern light, rows of cozy buildings and autumn trees, colorful reflections on the wet asphalt and bright night sky. You may think they may be boring if they look similar, but I can reassure you – every canvas has something special, a kind of a mystery you have to solve by yourself. So, if you are looking for a nice contemporary art canvas, buy one of Leonid Afremov’s paintings and will become not only a great decoration for your room, but also a source of your inspiration!
