"Blue Castle" by Leonid Afremov
Looking at this impressive painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a city at
night. The straight row of yellow buildings stands before us, with the
windows dark and lifeless and a mysterious light cast on their
walls. The ground is disappearing beneath their foundations, so that the
earth resembles the brown sea, wild, blusterous, with rising waves
licking the walls of the houses. No person is seen on the street, the
city seems to be empty and silent. The black sky is covering the whole
space above the city, only the full moon is appearing through the heavy
night clouds and is substituting their blackness for deep blue coloring. And a blue castle towers above the drowsy houses, majestic,
suffused with the pale and cold radiance of the moon. Its exquisite
black towers seem to be touching the very sky. Its pale walls dilute the
gloom reigning everywhere around, and yet we see that darkness is
hiding itself inside the castle, for its windows lack for light. This
silent shelter of dark shadows is full of mysteries, so that you cannot
but want to reach its radiant walls and enter its dark silence.Firerock Fine Art and Leonid Afremov: We

Leonid Afremov (born 12 July 1955 in
Vitebsk, Belarus) is a Russian-Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works
mainly with a palette knife and oils. Leonid Afremov graduated from Vitebsk Art
School. Leonid worked a lot and participated in many different exhibitions in
Vitebsk. Over time he has developed his own unique technique and style, which
is unmistakable and cannot be confused with other artists. Before the
advancement of online sales, Afremov was a struggling artist. He was born in
Vitebsk, Belarus, and lived there until 1990. Between 1990 and 2002 he lived in
Israel and from 2002 to 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida. Afremov currently resides
in the popular resort town Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Cancun.
