About this artwork
This painting is part of artist Onelio Marrero's latest series that explores the terrain and geology of the hilly northwest of New Jersey. Onelio took advantage of the diverse textures and colors he encountered at the scene on one of his painting hikes. He included his wife working at her easel. I recaptured the chilly morning light and used rich impasto and palette knife work to capture the effect of the winter trees and fallen leaves.
