This is another in a series of paintings I have executed over the years exploring ponds, waterlilies, koi and goldfish. The lilies on my pond tend to flower for little more than one day and are replaced almost daily by a fresh one. I never tire of observing each new flower and pondering how the mark out the march of time.

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.
