I am an avid reader and I love to visit nearby used bookstores. I am not alone. Even though our modern age fills our minds with so many distractions, I find it comforting that others still find adventure, solace and contemplation within the printed page. This painting does it's part to sum up that feeling by showing a comrade visiting the history section of my favorite bookstore. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
