Sloppy Louie's was a fixture in the South Street Seaport for decades! (1930-1998) It is now gone, but I captured it in oils from my many photographs of the seaport and included it in my series of the Fulton Fish Market. An old seafood haunt!
I find that many of my NYC paintings capture moments in history as the city changes so rapidly, it is one of my goals to record such places and haunts, moments in time!
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.
