The scene in this painting is the Central Park carousel in New York City. It is officially called the Michael Friedsam Memorial Carousel. I think it is one of the most wondrous carousels I have ever seen. It is still one of the main attractions I love to visit each time I go to Central Park. It's so wonderful to see the delight on children's faces when they find a horse they like and climb aboard for the ride.

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.
