Sisters was about two siblings which she based her painted series about. The "Annie Saves A Bird" was about Annie DiLeo...a lady that helped Jon Katz manage his Bedlam Farm for awhile in Washington County. The bird she saved was a Baltimore Oriole chick that fell out of the nest. She replaced the chick to allow the mother to take care of it and Ellie painted the picture because the event moved her so.
Both Elli and her late husband Bernard, have their work available in many venues within the art world. Elli also has her own gallery in Woodstock, NY and visits are available by appointment, so call her.
