Water lilies, reed grass and sweet rockets occupy the scene in this painting. My depictions of local fresh water ponds, lakes and slow moving streams are a theme I return to again and again. In this case, the approaching dusk fills the painting with subtle but unexpected hues. I originally started the painting as a 26x36 composition but later adjusted the format so I could include the sweet rockets in the lower left.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished 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.
