The beauty of a night city

The best time of the day

I like night cause it’s the most productive time for me. I often sit with my sketchbook near the fire and think about my future line in New York Fashion Week. I think, this is the best city cause I live and work there. If my inspiration escapes me, I try to find it in the lonely streets of the night New York. When neither of these methods works, I turn to modern art; canvas pictures made by a skilled artist raise my spirit. When I decided to buy abstract canvas art for my apartment, I did a web search and found the online gallery of Leonid Afremov. His works touched my heart and there were a few reasons for that:

  • Bright colors that always tune me to good mood. His bold usage of contrasting colors gave me a few fresh ideas for my new collection.
  • Despite the great number of paintings, you will never find two identical pictures on this website. Even if you choose several artworks united by the same theme, you will discover that they are different in every detail.
  • The mixture of Impressionism and abstract art makes Leonid Afremov’s paintings both very realistic and unreal. You understand the scenery is typical, but it looks very extraordinary.

Also he offers canvas art sets for sale that can become an incredible adoration for a spacious living room.

The intimacy of the night

Of course, it is better to see once than to hear ten times. So when I decided that to add a painting by Leonid Afremov to my collection, I studied several cityscapes. There was one I particularly liked; that was Night Boulevard, painted with a palette knife. It shows a quiet night street covered in deep shadows and colorful lights reflected in the puddles. Lit by the street lamps, the trees seem to glow with gold. The buildings aren’t tall, so we can the night sky, full of bright spots that look like dozens of colorful kites. The road has turned into a fanciful river carrying hundreds of various shades down the street. These reflections on the wet asphalt always make me wonder if this road has a bottom. And by the way, did you notice that on the left side of the road the trees are bare, while on the right side they are covered with green leaves? That makes me shiver, really. So, my advice to you is: if you are looking for a contemporary art canvas, buy Leonid Afremov’s paintings, and you’ll never regret it!

The price of success

Do you know who stands beyond the success of famous superstars? I mean, not producers or parents, but all those people who do their job to make the image of a celebrity beautiful and claimed. This category includes: makeup artists, designers, stylists, hairdressers, song writers, back-vocalists and many others. I mean, there are a lot of people who are left behind the curtain and who should share their popularity, but we don’t know anything about them. As for me, I don’t like pop music cause I think singers are rather artificial today, and their actions are only a nice play. But I was surprised when Justin Bieber asked the viewers to applaud for the songwriter who brought him to the top of the Billboard chart. (Read here: Poo Bear, it’s the pseudonym of the author, was very surprised cause no one showed him such respect. He wrote songs for many famous and prosperous people, but they never mentioned Poo Bear’s name. Just imagine: this person, who had written so many hits for well-known musicians, doesn’t have his own page in Wikipedia? Really, there are people in our world who work in the show business, but don’t gain any fame for it. We just don’t think about it. But I guess we should.


Hello, my dear readers!

Every woman wants to be beautiful, no matter what number she sees when she looks at the scales.
