I often paddle my kayak on the Rockaway River at Danville NJ. Early mornings are best. This part of the river runs through a residential area where it's quiet and peaceful. For my outbound journey usually paddle eastward which is downstream. This way I can enjoy the sights. We have had a cool August here in NJ and the trees have started turning. I was struck by the way the light worked its way through the leaves of the trees and bounced off the surface of the water in bright glints of light.

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.
