The artist painted this after a recent trip to Italy. This is one of Venice's many narrow canals that are surrounded by ancient buildings. Like most architecture in Venice, the years have brought a rustic feel that reveals much of the underlying building materials. Onelio endeavored to capture the reflections in the uniquely colored water and typical erosion and watermarks on the buildings that give Venice its singular appeal.

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.
