While boating on a lake near a friend's house in Connecticut, I came across this lovely scene. The water was like a mirror that day except for the occasional light kiss of wind on the water. I was reminded of the legendary ancient Jerusalem Pool of Siloam found in the New Testament. The surface of the water in the pool in Jerusalem was occasionally disturbed by an angel of healing and the first bather to go in after such a disturbance was healed of any affliction. In a way, I found the play of the wind kissing the water in the lake to be healing to my soul.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white 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.
