The setting for this painting is a diner in the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. The market is a packed storehouse of eateries whose aromas tickle the nose with cooking and baking from Amish food to delicate chocolates, candies and typical American fare. Completing the scene is the bustle of the crowds and the visual clutter. Every time I go there, I am torn as to what shop or kiosk to visit. I wanted to capture the essence of the place and that feeling.
The painting is on gallery wrapped canvas and is varnished, wired, and ready for hanging. The edges are a clean white gesso.

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.

I purchased your "Bubble Meditation" and absolutely love it. I am not a connoisseur, just a normal person that likes what I like. I love a painting that pulls me into it and makes me part of the moment, your paintings do that. I will enjoy my painting for a long time to come. Thank you!- D Gibson
I love my “Two Man Pour” painting as it is detailed by nature. I saw mirror image and mirror reflection with facial features, which are exquisitely realistic. The rust medium reminds me of Jean-Honore Fragonard. My next painting from you was going to be ‘Almost Closing Time” which I lost to another collector. ‘When you snooze, you lose’ It will not happen again. Bravo Onelio Marrero.- A Danso
