Rose Sunset in the Clove, with PayPal link:

Hello friends, collectors, art lovers all!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil, posting another of my framed oil paintings.  I used to live in the Hudson Valley of New York State and learned to paint mostly by studying the work of the Hudson River School masters of the nineteenth century.  This painting is a view of dramatic Kaaterskill Clove in the high Catskills,  a location often painted by Thomas Cole and other Hudson River School painters.  In the mid-1800s Cole had to hike 12 miles up the mountain from the City of Catskill;  I count myself lucky to have access to this great view from a pullover spot by a two lane road, when I am in the area.     .

You can see more of my art by reading more of these blog posts, going back to 2007.  Or browsing www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni     My e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

This painting is on 8x10" canvas in a museum quality  hardwood frame that brings it to almost 16-1/2 by 19" on the wall.  It is currently in my studio and is priced at $485. including shipping within the USA.   I now accept PayPal through this blog, and you can purchase this work by clicking the link near the end of this post.

I am happy to show this painting and my other art by appointment in my studio, which is now located in  Sedona AZ, a region of dramatic scenery with red rock cliffs,  on the other side of the USA.
If you purchase a work from this blog and are less than delighted with it when it arrives you can return it for a refund within 30 days.

Most people feel my art looks better in actuality, when you can appreciate the detail and depth created by my time consuming glazing-based technique.

I also take checks and money orders on USA-based banks. If you want to pay by PayPal use the following link.  It will take you directly to PayPal checkout and you can fill in your e-mail address and PayPal password.

View to Airport Mesa With PayPal Link:

Hello, art lovers and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, now painting in the red rock country of Sedona,  Arizona, where the very earth and rock formations have a unique rose color.  I paint in oil, in a detailed and emotive manner inspired by the Hudson River School of the mid-1800s. And I am not the first Hudson River School aficionado to paint the west:  Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt's art are fabulous examples of what inspires me.   More of my art is on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is  eperantoni@yahoo.com

This view in the painting above is from the back of my studio facing toward Airport Mesa, on the other side of which is the famous Airport Mesa vortex, and the local airfield.   There are houses tucked here and there among the folds of land,  but as a painter who treasures the pristine in nature I  have ignored them for the purposes of this painting.  When you look at it, you feel the landscape contains nothing but the wind, the rocks, the desert vegetation and the desert animals.  You can almost hear the wind sighing gently..

This work is currently in my studio and I will show it and my other art by appointment, or ship it   It is on a 12x12" stretched canvas, framed as shown in a wide tarnished gold wood frame which brings it to almost 20x20" on the wall.   Framed as it is,  the price is $800. including FREE shipping..

To purchase this work with PayPal click on this link and it will take you to PayPal Checkout.  Then key in your e-mail address and PayPal password.  :

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=SPABKE2697KVN

You can purchase it using PayPal or checks or money orders drawn on a USA based bank.  If you purchase a work  from a digital photo online and you are not delighted when it arrives you can return it for a refund.  I have many references from satisfied collectors to whom I have shipped paintings.

I started this art blog in 2007.  I hope you will want to read more posts.  To read older posts simply click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this web page.

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

Sedona Paintings in the Hudson River School Manne, r and PAYPAL:




Hello all friends, art lovers and collectors of landscape painting!   This is Ellen Perantoni again,  painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School immortals of the nineteenth century.   (Think Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran.)   I learned to love this school of art when I lived and painted in the heart of the Hudson Valley in New York State.  Now that I live in the red rock country of Sedona AZ  I paint the unique red rocks of this region with the same love of natural landscape and its power to evoke feeling and emotion beyond the merely visual. 

I apologize for not having posted here for a while -- but am trying tot make up for it by posting 4 of my recent paintings.

The first image, entitled Pristine Sedona,  is a panoramic view from Cathedral Rock near my studio, on 11x14" stretched canvas.. Unframed it is $750. including FREE shipping within the USA.  Click on this link to go to PayPal checkout to purchase this work.

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=7VY89KL7BQQN2


The third painting is a view of a rock jumble on Cathedral Rock just after a rare dusting of snow.   The air after the snow squall is crystalline; you can almost feel the freshness when you look at this painting.  Even the clouds have not quite cleared away yet.  This painting is on 8x10" stretched canvas.  It is entitled After a Dusting and the price including FREE shipping is $475.  Here is the PayPal button to purchase this work:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=HUZB397ZUH2E6

The fourth painting is a view of rock towers near the very summit of  world famous Cathedral Rock -- at night,  when the moon is low in the sky and looks like a huge brilliant coin.  This larger 24x30" painting is executed on stretched canvas 1-1/2" deep and the painting is continued onto the sides for a bold 3D effect  that does not require framing.  This painting is $2575.  This is the PayPal button to purchase this work:

You can see some of the frame styles I use in other posts on this blog.

Or, I can paint your favorite view as a commission -- at the time of day and time of year you prefer. 

You can view my art in the studio by appointment as well.   Sedona is a fabulous place to visit and if you would like info about that,  I can offer you suggestions that you will find helpful.

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

Best, Ellen

My Open Studio Weekend, April 24-26, 2015


Hello friends, art lovers and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, announcing an upcoming open studio at my Sedona AZ studio from April 24-26, that's Friday through Sunday from 10-5.  I look forward to meeting the public and showing them my landscapes in oil and many surprises in prints and oil studies.   Some of the landscapes are views of Sedona and northern Arizona; and some are paintings I did when I lived in the Hudson Valley of New York State.  The classical Hudson River School influence in the latter is obvious.

Oil paintings and studies will range from 4x6" to 24x36", and are priced from under $90. to $3600.
I have Limited Edition prints on paper and canvas, from $30. up.  

I enjoy painting "View Portraits"  of people's favorite views, and can paint these commissioned works at a client's favorite time of day and time of year.  It isn't the season for snow scenes, but I paint those and some people love those most of all.

My open studio will be part of a community wide Open Studios weekend including 51 studios in all.
I can send you a map to the studios if you wish. 

It has been a pleasure having this blog read by people all over the USA and abroad.   And I would be delighted if some of you blog readers came to Sedona so I could meet you at my studio.  Sedona is a fabulous place to visit and you would love the trip. 

Sedona is about 2 hours from Phoenix and other cities in Arizona and a few hours from Las Vegas and parts of California and New Mexico. 

Keep reading (this blog goes back to 2007) and e-mail me at eperantoni@yahoo.com for more info on open studio weekend.   If you can't make it that weekend,  we can make an appointment for you to visit the studio another time.

Best, Ellen

PAY WITH PAYPAL for Petroglyphs Near the Summit



Hello again, art lovers and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again with a newly finished and framed oil painting of Sedona AZ -- with a difference, a minor excursion into fantasy.  .   I usually paint views pretty much the way they are, in the realistic tradition of Albert Bierstadt and the Hudson River School.  But since coming to Arizona I've become enamoured of the mysterious petroglyphs left by early Native American civilizations.   Petroglyphs (rock paintings) such as those in this view were normally done in caves and protected locations where they would not be exposed to the elements.  But as a creative artist I have here added my own petroglyphs on a rock jumble near the top of Cathedral Rock.

I have been posting art images, art chat and purchase info in this blog since 2007.   More of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

This painting can now be seen in my Sedona studio.  It is a 12x16" stretched canvas in a museum quality carved wood frame that brings it to almost 20x24" on the wall.   It is priced at $925.00. as framed.

*** IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS WORK --OR ANY WORK ON THIS SITE -- YOU CAN NOW BUY DIRECTLY FROM THESE BLOG POSTS
                           WITH PAYPAL CHECKOUT. ***

 To purchase "Petroglyphs Near the Summit"  for $925.00 including FREE SHIPPING within the USA, click on the link that starts https:/www.paypal.com  at the end of this blog post.  You will receive all the buyer benefits of paying with PayPal.  PayPal is FREE to the purchaser. 

If you would like to know how to open a PayPal account log onto www.paypal.com or e-mail me at eperantoni@yahoo.com with your questions.

I WILL BE ACCEPTING PAYPAL FOR ALL MY PAINTINGS ON THESE BLOG POSTS, but I need to add an individual link for each painting.  It will take some time to add a PayPal link for every painting for sale -- so if you don't see a PayPal link for the painting you want e-mail me at eerantoni@yahoo.com and I will create the link for that painting. 

Please let me know if you would like to see more photos of it, such as closeups, or whether you would like to view it at the studio.  I am happy to show my art here by appointment. 

Most people feel my art looks better in actuality, as the depth and detail does not fully show up in digital photos on the Internet.  If you purchase a work from a digital photo without first seeing the original you can send it back for refund within 30 days if you are not delighted.  Most buyers are.
E-mail any questions to eperantoni@yahoo.com     I would love to hear from you.

My Paintings at The Alt Gallery, Sedona AZ


Hello friends and art lovers, blog readers everywhere!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School of the nineteenth century (before there were cameras good enough to capture the way things really look).  I am now living and working in Sedona AZ, and have paintings on display at the Alt Gallery, 671 Route 179, Sedona AZ.

 The Alt  is on the first level of Hillside Plaza,  an inspired construction worth seeing in its own right, for the way in which it is built into the curves of the base of the red rock cliffs. The gallery is open 7 days a week and the phone number is 928-554-7840.

 The gentle sunset pictured above was inspired by the art of Hudson River School master George Inness,  and the sun's track across the still water is a soft luminous gold.   The painting is executed on 11x14" stretched canvas, and in its heavy hardwood frame as pictured it is about 20x24" on the wall.  It is priced at $900.

I hope those of you within reach of Sedona will stop by the Alt.  And I hope those of you far from Sedona -- including those who have followed this blog since I lived in NYS - will consider a visit to Sedona.   It is a landscape of unique beauty, as you can see from my "red rock paintings"  in this blog.

I have been posting art images, art chat and purchase info on this blog since 2007 and you may enjoy reading the other posts going back to that year.  Just click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this web page. 

Have a great week!  Mark at the Alt Gallery would be happy to see you.

 Best, Ellen
