The scene here is from the Rockaway River in NJ. I often have opportunity to observe and enjoy this river as it winds its way through my home town. We had a cool August here in NJ and some isolated trees have started turning. Many enthusiasts paddle its tranquil waters. Sometimes, when the water is smooth like glass, it seems as if the paddlers are slicing right through the reflections.

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.
