This painting depicts a park in historic Morristown, NJ. The park is referred to as "The Green." Onelio chose to paint this on an early morning while a light drizzle was falling and very few people were about. He wanted to show the way the park is broken up by winding paths that invite leisurely enjoyment. One of his inspirations for this piece is a painting by Impressionist painter Gustave Caillebotte called "Paris Street; Rainy Day."

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.
