The setting for this painting is a fish market in the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. I love visiting the market for its eateries, fresh meats, fish and produce that arouse one's appetite. It is also a feast for the eyes with the bustle of the crowds and the visual clutter. Every time I go there, I am torn as to what shop or kiosk to visit. I wanted to capture the essence of the place and the intensity of its workers.

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.
