The inspiration for this painting comes from a small pond that I have been cultivating for several years. The water lilies I planted have been growing more and more robust and each day brings beautiful new blossoms. In the early morning sunlight the play of contrasts and colors is nothing short of spectacular. The painting is varnished, wired and ready for hanging. 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.
