The city of romance
Paris is the city that is filled with love. If you are making a proposal, just buy two tickets to this wonderful town, and your beloved one will answer “yes”. At least, Janny says she definitely would. Of course she’s too young to get married, but I totally support her idea. Paris has this special atmosphere attracting tourists from all over the world. This tremendous city is the center of attention for many creative people – musicians, writers, painters, architects, sculptors and many others. I recently stumbled upon a bright cityscape painted by Leonid Afremov. You may ask what’s so special about this artwork. I’ll try to explain it to you.
Just look at those colors!
Leonid Afremov is one of the best cityscape artists because he knows how to turn a range of buildings into a carnival of beauty. The painting ‘Paris of my dreams’ caught my eye for several reasons:
- The symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, is in the center of this artwork. It seems to be made of gold, illuminated by millions of lamps. The author didn’t stop by depicting a large tower; he continued it in the reflection on the wet asphalt that made it even more glorious.
- Bright spots in the sky resemble fireworks to me; they persistently say that Paris is the city of never-ending holiday.
- There is nothing extra on this canvas – no cars or tall buildings that could distract attention and cause the loss of unity with the scenery.
This example of cityscape art will definitely please a real romantic!
How much is happiness?
There are a lot of people who say that happiness costs too much. But what is their definition of this notion? Perhaps, they think that only things that could be bought for money will make them happy. But I believe it’s not true because happiness is something that fills your heart without banknotes. When I look at Paris of Leonid Afremov’s dream, I understand he is a happy man. Because he travels a lot and can see treasures of the world with his own eyes, and this is one of the most important and exciting experiences! And I am very glad that I found this inspiring cityscape; modern art in his performance makes my heart sing and gives me the desire to see as much interesting as I can!
