One of the places I enjoy most in New York City is the famed Central Park. In this case, the setting is 59th Street and 6th Avenue. There is a beautiful entrance to the park at that point and most of the hansom carriages enter through there with their fares. The sidewalks are granite and on this evening scene there was a fine drizzle and the sidewalks reflected the lights in a very subtle almost pointillist way.

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.
