Forge workers, blacksmiths, and foundry workers are subjects I return to because of my affinity to those difficult tasks. My experience in bronze casting drew me to this reenactment blacksmith. Despite the advances of technology, true craftsmanship has not changed much in the past centuries.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with white edges. It comes 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.
