This is one of my favorite coves in a nearby reservoir called Split Rock Reservoir. I love to explore the numerous small coves on this body of water but this is my favorite. There is a solitude there not unlike the quiet interior of most churches and cathedrals. The trees overhang most of it creating a shaded and rich canopy. The quiet lapping of the water and the reflections dappling the surfaces everywhere inspire quiet contemplation. 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.
