From the buildings and canals to the modes of transportation, everything in Venice is picturesque. The streets, alleys and bridges are limited almost exclusively to foot traffic. All merchandise moves by means of small barges, boats, carts and hand trucks. The artist saw this 'carettiere' along the Grand Canal on a rainy day as he traveled back and forth, moving merchandise between locations. The ancient architecture and paving stones took on even more beauty in the light drizzle.

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.
