This scene is from a recent trip Onelio took to Italy. After a lengthy day's walk through the many alleys and streets of Venice, the artist and his wife rode a water taxi back to their hotel on the Grand Canal. Onelio noticed the beautiful late afternoon light as it angled into the cabin of their water taxi. He placed a model in the cabin taking a nap. The model is based on his wife from a sketch he made of her napping many years ago.

Getting to Know Onelio

Onelio Marrero paints city scenes of everyday life. In an impressionistic style he captures the romanticism of New York City, the picturesque fountains in Central Park and the wet city streets after a rainy afternoon. His use of warm tones creates a sense of nostalgia and the feeling that you have visited or seen this particular scene before. Onelio will often paint from direct observation, or he will work from a combination of photographs and combine numerous sources into one piece. In this way his work combines reality with fantasy, creating a new story with each painting. His work captures an appreciation for beauty in all of its greatest forms; nature, art, and people.
