My wife and I frequently visit antiques and collectible stores. There is always so much to see and much of what I see recalls bygone days. In this particular collectibles store that featured numerous vendors's goods, I followed my wife around as she perused the merchandise. She is a seasoned collector and admirer of antiques. I tried to make her posture in this painting reflect that as she carefully examined the items in the case while keeping her hands behind her back to avoid mishaps.

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.
