PAINTINGS BY LEONID AFREMOV

Paintings lightweight fascinate me. A series of deliberate (or perhaps whimsical) brush strokes that lead to a masterpiece. I want to see what goes on in a painter’s head. Do they know what they’re gonna do ahead of time, or do they simply build off of each previous stroke. Probably a combination of both. It’s the efforts of Leonid Afremov that got me pondering art at 4:38 on a Thursday. It’s amazing what colors and strokes can lead to.
