I love to take our kayaks out on local rivers and lakes. This particular day, my youngest daughter and I were taking in the leisurely pace of downstream kayaking on the Rockaway River in New Jersey. The river has occasional weirs or dams and we had reached the placid area right before on of these weirs. It was the point of resting before turning back to head upstream against the current. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished and 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.
