This painting features the checkout counter at Caffe Scudieri located in the duomo piazza of Florence. While Onelio was spending a few days in Florence, he and his wife stopped in this wonderful establishment to refresh themselves and sample their wonderful pastries and incomparable espresso. The artist has always been drawn to capturing the effects of elegant interiors and the wonderful staff he finds on his travels. In this case, the lighting enhanced the magical qualities of the setting.

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.
