The setting is New York City's Central Park. This beautiful arch stone bridge in Central Park is called "Glade Arch". Although it is near one of the busier sections of the park near 79th Street, on this slightly overcast morning the foot traffic that normally passes under the arch was negligible. I found a welcome loneliness there.

This painting is varnished, wired and ready to hang. 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.
