Paintings at the Marketplace Cafe, Village of Oak Creek, Sedona AZ


Hello, art lovers and blog readers!   This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School landscape painters..  I've been doing this blog since 2007 and it features art, art chat and purchase info. 

As most of you know, I now have my home and studio in the fabulous red rock country of Sedona AZ.   Next to Sedona nestles the Village of Oak Creek,  with the Marketplace Cafe a mecca for art, dining and entertainment.   Now a group of my paintings are an ongoing exhibit on the walls of the MPC, as pictured above.  Bev Copen curates the art at MPC and her e-mail address is beverlycopen@gmail.com      My e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

You can stop in any day at the marketplace and purchase my art directly from the nice people there.  I will rotate the works on exhibit from time to time.  15% of the price of each piece sold will go the charity. 

The Marketplace Cafe is in a shopping plaza at the corner of State Route 179 and Jacks Canyon Road.   There is alfresco dining so you can enjoy the usually-beautiful weather of the region.  Sedona and the MPC are well worth a visit, if you haven't been here yet.  Perhaps I will see you,  and we will meet.

Have a great week!

Best, Ellen

A White Christmas is Coming.....







     ......and this year I have completed several snow paintings in time to greet the first snowfalls in most parts of the USA and other temperate regions.  These are hushed scenes of pristine snowfalls on pines, fields and hillsides, all in moonlight.

         Hello!  I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the nineteenth century Hudson River School of art,  and such masters as Albert Bierstadt and Frederick Church.  It is a lesser known fact that Church's most successful painting was not a Hudson Valley scene, but the panoramic "Icebergs".

         My winter scenes here are more intimate,  and their framed sizes range from about 12" by 14" on the wall, to about 20" by 32".  I could frame them differently, or sell them unframed if collectors request. 

          At this time, these are all in my studio here in Sedona,  AZ.  The prices, as framed, are from $300. to $1700.   Some of them will be exhibited in shows and galleries, but at present I will be happy to show them here by appointment,  or to ship to collectors.   I accept PayPal checks on US based banks, and will consider  installment payments from sincere collectors. 

         If you purchase a painting from an Internet digital photo and are less than delighted with it,  you can return it for a refund within 30 days.  Most people think my work looks better in actuality,  as the depth and detail can be better appreciated when you are looking at the painting rather than a photo. 

       I will pleased to answer any questions you may have.  This blog goes back to 2007 and consists of many ofter posts and art images.   To view earlier posts, and paintings of other seasons,  click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this web page.

       I can be reached at eperantoni@yahoo.com  and more paintings can be seen on  www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni

       Have a great week! I would love to hear from you.

           Best, Ellen

View Along Back O' Beyond Road, Sedona

Hello, art lovers and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again,  painter of the landscape in oil, posting another recent painting that is now drying in my studio here in Sedona AZ.   The primary inspiration for my art is the Hudson River School with its attention to detail and  the emotive power of the landscape.  Not all Hudson River School paintings were of the Hudson Valley -- Albert Bierstadt is mostly noted for his paintings of the American West, as is Thomas Moran.   This blog is a collection of art images, art chat and purchase info, and I've been psoting here since 2007.  My e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com and more art images can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni

This painting is 10x20" and is executed on 1-1/2" thick stretched canvas with no nails or staples on the sides, and the painting is continued onto the sides so it stands out from the wall and has a more three-dimensional effect.   If a buyer prefers framing I can do that too.  The painting is priced at $1000. and I will be happy to show it here at Back O'Beyond Studio by appointment.   Sedona is a fabulous place and you will love visiting here if you haven't already.

If you purchase a painting from an Internet photo without first seeing the painting,  you can return it for a refund within 30 days if you are not delighted.  Most people feel my paintings look better in actuality.  

The above photo was taken during a demonstration here in the studio, which was attended by members of the public as I explained some of the process of my work.

This painting is currently drying herein my studio showroom and can be seen by appointment;  I love to welcome people to my showroom.  The work is on 16x20" stretched canvas with the painting continued onto the sides of the canvas.   It is priced at $1400. and I can do framing if you like.

If you purchase a painting from this blog or one of my other web sites and are not delighted,  you can return it for a refund within 30 days.   Most people feel the paintings look better in actuality,  as the full depth and detail cannot be appreciated from  these digital internet photos.  I think you will be pleased when you get yours.

Another great day of painting is starting, and I must get going.  I would love to hear from you. 

Best, Ellen

Sunset Silhouettes

Hello, art lovers and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again,  painter of the landscape in oil, and today I am focusing on the dramatic appearances of  trees against a sunset.  The above paintings are small in size, mostly 11-1/2x13-1/2" on the wall in the museum quality wood frames pictured here.  When the sun is behind an object as it sets, the horizontal rays create the illusion of deliciously intense darks against the fiery clouds.  This is so much fun to paint!  I like these together as a group even more than  individually.  You can see more of my art on  www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni  and my e-mail address is   eperantoni@yahoo.com

The above paintings are all available at this time, and in my studio.  Prices start at $215. including the frames, which would cost at least $75. each at a fine frame shop (some frame shops don't even carry any styles as nice as this. The frame on even the smallest painting shown weighs almost 4 lbs.)

The second painting from the top is an 8x10" canbvas and almost 14x16" on the wall.  It is $398.  as framed.  The fourth painting, in the oval frame, is an 11x14" canvas in a great vintage frame with ovel opening, which is about 16x19" on the wall.  This painting is $498.  as framed, and the silhouettes of the trees seem to shimmer both against the sky and as reflected in the water in teh foreground.

You are welcome to see the paintings before purchase if you like,.  My home and studio are in Sedona AZ , about 100 miles from Phoenix AZ and 140 miles or so from Las Vegas.   I show my art here at Back O' Beyond Studio and Gallery.   Please contact me for appointment and directions.  

If you order a painting from an internet photo without first seeing the original,  you can return it within 30 days for a refund if you are not delighted.    Most people feel my art looks better in actuality, deeper and more detailed.

Have a great week!  And enjoy the other posts in this blog, going back as far as 2007.  Just click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of the page.   

Have a great week!  I would love to hear from you.
