This enchanting location is in a state park in Pennsylvania named Promised Land. I have often explored this lake and its many inlets in my canoe. I love to glide the canoe over the lily pads and hear the soft swishing sound they make on the hull as I glide over them. As I painted this scenery, I was transported back to the place in my mind in my efforts to convey the serenity of the setting.

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.
