    Great painting! Any place that I can buy the painting, if it is not too expensive.

    • David John Marotta

      Leonid Afremov is one of my favorite painters. I’ve bought a few of his paintings as gifts and I have one hanging in my home office. They are very reasonable priced ($240 and less) and he often has deals where you can buy multiple paintings at even lower prices. He will duplicate a painting and create another copy for one you like. This painting is called Sunny Path.

      You can either visit his website or you can drop him an email and correspond with him directly via email at Leonid Afremov . Let him know that you saw his art at MarottaOnMoney as we are using images from his paintings with his permission.

      This is a beautiful image, but after viewing his art gallery you will take advantage of one of his sales and buy three of them!

      If $240 is too much for an original (it clearly is not!) you can also get prints of his art for less. Here is that painting as a print:

      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.[1] He developed his own unique technique and style which is unmistakable and cannot be confused with other artists. Afremov is mainly known as being a self-representing artist who promotes and sells his work exclusively over the internet with very little exhibitions and involvement of dealers and galleries.
