Though I am not particularly attracted to flambé meals, the theatricality behind the making is always exciting to watch. In this painting, I focused on the variety of colors and light. The interior is warm in color but the chef's outfit and the table linens dazzled me with the reflections of cool daylight filtering in from a large nearby window.

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.
