As I walked along 5th Avenue, my eyes were dazzled by the dappled sunlight on the stonework and foliage. I was headed uptown strolling along when I saw a little girl turning around, her attention apparently drawn by something that her hurried mother was unaware of. It's always a pleasure for me to watch people, and the idea of a young child noticing something that her adult companion missed reminds me of what a wonder the world is through the eyes of a child.

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.
