Among the many places I like to go for subject matter is my favorite beach on the New Jersey shore. The light on the many colored surfaces is always inspiring. At low tide in the afternoon, most bathers turn to rummaging through the plethora of shells left by the ebbing tide. The tidal puddles create wonderful reflections of the sky mixed with the bathers' reflections, while the glints of sunlight sparkle in a continual dance as the low waves wash up on shore.

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.
