Welcome to Green Boots Studio...Art of Ellen A. Gavin

Ellen is a fine artist working primarily in oils. Painting either on location “Plein Air” …or in her studio in Millville, New Jersey. She produces only originals. Each unique painting beginning with a personal vision. Ellen’s style is painterly…realism with emotional brushwork. Either nature’s moods, or human interest, inspiration is everywhere, waiting to be captured.

Area of Specialty__________________________________________
Though always working in oils, her subject interests are broad. Gavin is becoming nationally recognized as an equestrian painter. Her paintings often include figures, and she enjoys the observation of peoples’ idiosyncrasies.On location, she paints Plein Air landscapes and cityscapes, whenever possible. Finally, her “Small Idea” paintings have allowed success in the realm of miniatures, although still executed in somewhat loose painterly style.

Price Range______________________________________________
Small original oils start at $95…Commissions begin at $600. Most paintings range $300 to $3,000. All of my inventory cannot be posted on-line. 
If you have seen a painting previously, it may still be available. Also the very popular 4x6 paintings are almost never on- line. Please call or email I would be happy to send you images of currenly available ones.
