Another in a series of paintings depicting restaurants, this piece focuses on the movement of a waitress spreading fresh linens. In order to convey that sense of movement, I endeavored to use vigorous brushstrokes that contribute to what I call economy of expression. This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
