Bryant Park in mid Manhattan is one of my favorite places to visit. Though it is small compared to some parks, it always has a broad range of areas to rest and play. It even has ping pong tables. In late October, construction for the Christmas village begins but the focal point to me is the marvelous fountain. It seems to be a favored rendezvous spot and there are always numerous people who appear to be waiting. This morning the sunlight struck a woman's golden hair with a wondrous rim effect.

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.
