My wife and I frequently visit antiques and collectible stores. I am often struck by the patient craftsmanship as well as the whimsy of the items I find. This particular antiques and collectibles store features items from numerous vendors. The vendors are not usually present and are represented by one or two proprietors. However, this particular vendor's niche was in transition and the vendor happened to be seated in her niche. To me, it almost looked like a woman seated in her quaint parlor.

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.
