Foundry work is so labor intensive and at times, the work can be tedious. Even after the metal is poured, there are always tasks that need immediate attention. In this painting, the craftsman is scraping up the slag that is often accumulated on the pouring area floor. This painting 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.
