I enjoy everything that’s beautiful and stylish. And I take great effort to surround myself with items that make me feel comfortable and good. My apartment isn’t that big – as I already told you, it’s just a loft. But I tried to furnish it with taste. To tell the truth, the furniture was quite all right as I bought it. But I had to put a lot of work into creating a contemporary ambience and a stylish interior here. Luckily, I stumbled upon a site selling pretty cool paintings that immediately grabbed my attention. Actually, it’s not even a site, it’s the official online gallery of one artist. He showcases and sells his works over the internet and I should say it’s a pretty nice idea. You don’t need to spend the whole day driving around the city from one gallery to another. And I take it he doesn’t have to pay huge commission for getting his art displayed at some chick hall. But that’s beside the point.
So, I took a look through Leonid Afremov’s site – that’s what the artist’s name is – and decided that I can use some of his paintings to cover my sorry walls with style and without extra expenses. I just couldn’t resist all those vibrant colors and amazing images! Canvases by Leonid Afremov have this unexplainable impact on everyone who looks at them:
- You feel your mood going up, even if you were deeply depressed just a moment earlier.
- All your troubles vanish like at the wave of a hand.
- For a few hours after, you feel totally calm and relaxed.
But most importantly, you start noticing the beauty of the world that surrounds you! It’s like becoming a kid again, for a few precious moments. I’m not a sentimental type, but even I can become emotional when looking at something like this.
I must say, I was pretty suspicious about this artist first. I’ve already had a negative experience with online stores and was afraid this time it was going to be the same. But when I learned more about the Leonid Afremov and read an overview of his online shop in my favorite art magazine, I decided there is nothing to fear. Now I cal tell that for sure 🙂 The paintings arrived without a hitch. Each of them was signed by the artist, so I had no doubt I purchased the real thing. So if you plan to shop for art, the best place to do it is Leonid Afremov’s site afremov.com!
