This painting depicts a scene I encountered in New York City's Central Park. The area is known as Bethesda Square. Under the square is an opulent arcade that has the most amazing acoustics. I often stop to enjoy the buskers and contemplate their skills and talents. The bass player caught my eye and had me in rapt attention. The decorative architecture harmonized with with his music.

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.
