This favorite spot for hiking always supplies infinite possibilities for subject matter. In this case a friend of ours accompanied us with her daughter. As they sat in a declivity in the boulders, she was explaining the geology and water erosion to her toddler. They are never too young to learn. Life is full of these "teachable moments." This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
