I painted an entire series of oil paintings "From the High Line". This scene is looking down from the High Line Park over 10th Ave in Chelsea to the streets below on a brilliant June day! The unique vantage point offers a different perspective of New York City, advertising/signs become prominent, and the varied architectural styles of the city against the passing cars and figures are seen in a different light. The colorful playful scene was a joy to paint! Summertime!

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.
