I’m a hedonist. I love enjoying life and try to take as much as I can from it. Some people think it’s only big things that matter. Say, their family or career or some freaky life mission. I won’t argue that. I’ll just add that small things are important too. Sometimes you can only big something big and meaningful from many many tiny fragments that seem irrelevant when you take them separately. That’s why I believe there are no such things in our life that don’t matter. Everything from your cherished dream to the color of nails can turn out to be crucial. I’m a fan of details. Wanna know my secret? You don’t need to feel overwhelmed by details and burdened with them. Such attitude kills all the fun. Instead, try to enjoy them. Lighten up! Get a kick out of the process. You’ll love it!
As an artist (though not a very brilliant one), I’m constantly prowling the internet for new inspirations. I don’t mind wasting time flipping through Pinterest and Deviantart pages in search of something extraordinary. That’s yet another small thing that brings me pleasure. A few days ago, I saw something amazing! Those were paintings by Leonid Afremov https://afremov.com/, a not so well known artist from Israeli who lives in Mexico. Yeah, tricky story. The way he paints is… unbelievable!
- Your eyes never saw such a huge concentration of color!
- Everything is painted in multihued flaky strokes, like petals, or raindrops, or fireworks.
- By the way, it’s often raining in Afremov’s pictures, but his rain is warm and bright!
- Lamp posts, house windows, street lights and countless reflections make his canvases sparkle!
But the most important thing about them is the atmosphere. There is so much life and joy in those unpretentious landscapes and city views! You can feel your mood go up simply by looking at them! I was so impressed by Leonid Afremov and his works that I immediately decided to buy one. I chose a painting showing a tropical beach at sunset. I already added it to the shopping card and wanted to click the purchase button when I suddenly started having second thoughts. What if I’m making a mistake? What if Afremov and all this site is one big deceit? Then my risky side won and I did it. And you know what? I didn’t have to worry! The canvas arrived in time and delivery was absolutely free. I even saved up by hitting the deal of the day. So if you ever think of buying art online, I know just the right place for it!
