The inspiration for this painting was the pattern of order laid down by the narrow leaf water lilies I found while kayaking in Connecticut. The narrow leaves, unlike regular water lilies, seem to point in varying directions that played against the implied lines connecting each leaf cluster. The entire scene struck me as a playful yet strong design. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes 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.
