This is a sweeping view of the 3 bridges over Lower Manhattan on a very foggy morning, it was just breathtaking! The Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge in the far distance all shrouded in mist and fog. This is my favorite view in the world, from my 25th floor balcony, and I paint it in all types of weather and season!
My name is Ellen Bradshaw. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. My work was influenced by the realism of the Ashcan painters of the 1910-30's, as well as the sense of color and atmosphere explored by the Impressionists. My usual subject is New York City. "I'm drawn to the common everydayness of life in the city, and perhaps what is hidden just beneath the surface of the ordinary. The reflective moody quirky streets of Lower Manhattan are my usual subjects - the neighborhoods, the personalities of her buildings, the majesty of her bridges, the streets transformed by snow or the colors of night, the lone figures of daily routine, the everyday intensity of the simple passing of moments against that in-your-face reality that is New York City." My landscape paintings depict the beautiful Finger Lakes Region in upstate Western New York. I have exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, concentrating on a specific theme for each series in my NYC collections.
