This painting depicts a seating area in my yard. It is one of our favorite places where my wife and I sit and read. Overhanging this space is a blooming wisteria that I planted years ago when the plants were only inches tall. I also constructed the supporting pergola that has enabled this wondrous plant to grow and overspread the adjoining patio. When in bloom, we enjoy the shade, fragrance and the glorious colors of the two types of pink and purple flowers that cascade from its vines.

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.
