I tend to be an early riser and rely mostly on an internal clock. My wife and I stayed at a bed and breakfast recently, and the early morning sun made its way into the room through a gap in the window treatments. The sun cut a bright shaft of light right onto my side of the bed. I might have gotten up anyway but the crisp light ensured that I would be up in time to see and capture the beauty of the moment as my wife lay nestled in the sea of sheets and quilts. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with white edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
