I first saw this painting on Pinterest and was immediately drawn in. I fell in love with the color and the light and even the scene. I had to know more. I learned that it was painted by Leonid Afremov with a pallette knife and oil on canvas. It is a process unique to Mr. Afremov. Afremov is a Russian Israeli modern impressionist painter who currently resides in Playa Del Carmen. He was born in Russia and has spent time in Israel and the USA. He struggled early in his career because he couldn't paint what he wanted to paint. In order to support his family he was forced to paint what the galleries believed they could sell. The internet and Ebay changed that. Now, he paints what he chooses and it sells online without exception. People all over the world are now collecting his work.
