This is one in a series of recent paintings where I have been exploring ponds, waterlilies, koi and goldfish. These fish are Koi from my neighbor's pond. I painted this piece on a wide format as a self imposed challenge to my usual format. I used loose brushwork to try to accentuate the movement of the fish and the fleeting reflections in the ripples.

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.
