A hearth fire is always a welcome theme for me. Whether it is winter or summer, the dancing flames always provide hours of enjoyment. Watching a fire long after everyone else has turned in provides solitude that is ripe for useful contemplation. It's a vigil that I welcome. This painting is varnished, wired, and ready for hanging. The edges are a clean white gesso.

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.
