My existence as an Artist is to create works that capture the heart of the viewer. Read more about me below.

About the artist

Thank you for visiting Daydream Paintings!

My name is Leon Elperin and I am a Russian-born local to the Bay Area artist.  I've been painting since 2002 and as I get older, I notice in myself a fiery passion to represent life's thoughts and experiences onto a canvas.  A color-filled representation of a world I am slowly learning to get to know and trust. 

Van Gogh once said, "I dream painting, and then I paint my dream," and with these painted dreams he moved the world into elegance and artistic enchantment.

I admire all artists and the visions they exhibit.  Many work not for the money or accolades but for those special moments when their work catches the heart of the viewer.  Many of the paintings in my collection are a result of my own dreams as well as things I have drawn for my customers.  I love each of my paintings dearly and invite you to enjoy them and comment on them as you please.

I also enjoy painting for others and so hope you would be interested in commissioning a custom painting from me.
