Taking a walk down the street in a city like ours is a luxury for a sociopath like me. I don’t do crowds very well. A regular person would spend just about ten minutes to get to the university from where I live. But for me that means rubbing shoulders at traffic lights and getting exposed to all kinds of urban noises. So I take a long way through the park. Its fluffy branches lock behind me protectively severing off all the hustle and I find myself surrounded by green silence. It’s so dense that I can almost scoop it up with my hands. I follow the winding path between the trees and run my fingers over their bark and leaves. This is our way of saying hello to each other. I believe each tree has a soul, just like us, and if you bond with one, you can feel its energy, its breath, even its thoughts. My favorite tree is a willow I dubbed Gwendolyn. She grows in the remote part of the park where nobody comes. Except me, I guess. I like to read, write or simply daydream in her shade. Too bad she’s just a tree… Or I’m just a human.
A tree for birthday
One day I woke up to frantic hammering on my door. It’s either police or my best friend Nina, I thought. And I was right. Nina appeared at my doorstep with a mysterious smile and an even more mysterious roll under her arm. ‘What’s this?’ I mumbled slowly getting back to reality. ‘This is your birthday, lunatic,’ was the answer. ‘And this is your present.’ I unrolled the paper and stared at it suddenly wide awake. That was a canvas artwork depicting my park! And my Gwendolyn growing right where she should be! First I thought it was Nina who painted it, but as much as she wanted me to think so she had to confess it was someone else’s doing. At this point there are three things about Nina I have to tell you:
- She kind of paints herself
- She’s crazy about Impressionism
- She is half Jewish
So even without knowing the name of the author, you are safe to suppose it was a Jewish impressionist. All right, no more suspense. Leonid Afremov. If you never heard about him, you should definitely visit his gallery where you can buy canvas art online cheap and fast. Even I, a person with no eye for art, was stunned by the brightness of colors and abundance of light. Now the painting hangs over my desk and sometimes it looks so real that it seems I can hold out my hand and touch Gwen’s leaves. It’s like having another window in my room that opens right into the park! How great there is a place where everyone can purchase a nice canvas artwork online without going anywhere and literally doing anything! So my advice: if you are looking for worthy canvas art, buy online on Leonid Afremov’s website!
