This is one of the picturesque corners on the 59th street border of New York City's Central Park. From this corner visitors can observe the anachronistic traffic comprised of modern transportation and old fashioned hansom carriages. I usually limit the number of figures in my paintings in order to focus on some quiet and intimate moment. This couple lingered at this spot for a long time just taking in the view.

This painting is varnished, wired and ready to hang. The edges are a clean white gesso.

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.
