Crossing towards Central Park East in New York City, I was smitten with the dappled sunlight on Fifth Avenue. I was headed towards the path that leads to the Plaza.
It's always a pleasure to stroll its cobbled sidewalk and visit the kiosks. In this case, I was headed towards the book seller's tables looking for some new treasures when I was overwhelmed by the sunlight and the patterns on the street. I wanted to convey the sense of movement in the sun dappled foreground.

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.
