Manhattan is a wonderland of activity at any time of day. When the weather starts to turn inclement, the lighting anomalies abound. A darkening sky during the wintry evening commute enhances the glow from street lights and shop windows. The ubiquitous food trailers parked curbside over the steaming subway grates enhance the mysterious foggy quality of the late afternoon wintry drizzle. This painting is the first painting I completed in 2017.

The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white 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.
