Discovering Wotan's Throne, and My Exhibit at City Hall, Sedona AZ

Hello art lovers, friends, collectors all!   This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, and I apologize for not having posted lately.  I have begun a series of large paintings of the Grand Canyon,  one of the crown jewels of my current home, Arizona.  This oil on canvas shows the formation known as Wotan's Throne within the 200 mile long canyon.   You can see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and  my e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

The City of Sedona asked to exhibit some of my art at Sedona City Hall, and this recently finished painting is among those along with 26 of my other paintings.  Sedona Arts & Culture Co-ordinator Nancy Lattanzi is very happy to show and sell  these works by appointment, or possibly by chance depending on when you stop in.  Her phone number is 928-203-5078 and City Hall is open from 8-4 on weekdays excluding holidays.  

This work is on a 36c36" stretched canvas, 1-1/2" deep with the painting continued onto the sides of the canvas.   I am very pleased with the way this striking composition lent itself to an elegant geometry, dramatic composition and fine detail.  It is priced at $6000.

The City Hall exhibit will continue through late April and there will be a reception at City Hall on a date that is not yet determined. I will post the date when it is set.

I hope those of you who are in the region will stop by City Hall to view the paintings.  Thanks again, Nancy!  And please contact me if you have any questions about the exhibit, or wish to view the paintings in my own gallery, Back O' Beyond Gallery/Studio.

I am now working on two more paintings of the Grand Canyon; each is also 36x36".  Have a great week, and I would love to hear from you.

Best, Ellen

Vignettes in Oil, of River and Mountains - They Are Going Fast!






Hello friends, collectors, art lovers, all!   This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil,  with a group of small paintings which I believe can be correctly described as vignettes.  I vignette can be literary or visual,  or even a story, as long as it has the quality of being a brief and tantalizing glimpse of something,  usually something beautiful or something worth enjoying and remembering.

    I recently found a small group of these frames which create the impression of looking at the enclosed painting through a window, which draw you into the scene and lets you repose contentedly there.   These frame styles are  not being made any more, as far as I know,  so I was delighted to get them and found them  happily inspiring.

    Each of the above works,  all of which are about 11x13" or  9x12" as framed,  is priced at $350. including free shipping within the USA.   Singly or as a group,  they work!

    For the convenience and comfort especially of online collectors,  I accept PayPal as well as checks and money orders drawn on USA-based banks.

   **CLICK ON THE PAYPAL LINKS BELOW EACH PAINTING, below, to purchase the painting from your PayPal account and have it shipped to you FREE.

       The links will take you directly to PayPal Checkout, where you will enter your PayPal account information.  You will get all PayPal buyer protection features.
If you are not delighted with the painting when it arrives you can return it to me for a refund within 30 days. 

   to the first painting, "Homage to Brilliance" in the rectangular frame,  painted on rigid artist board:

    the second painting,  "Fall Riverside Cameo" in the cathedral window style frame, painted on rigid artist board:

        This painting has been sold to a collector.. 
      

   to the third painting,  (this painting is about 9x12' as framed, on the wall)
"First Woods Nativity" the snow scene in the cathedral window style frame, (think Christmas!)  painted on wood, as many nineteenth century Hudson River School paintings were:

    the fourth painting,"Cameo of Hope"the sunset in the cathedral window frame, painted on wood:

      This painting has been sold to a collector.

   to the fifth painting, "Cameo of Grace"   a similar sunset in a cathedral window frame (this is the last frame I have in this wonderful style!  and no idea if I will ever find another one):

 to the sixth painting, "Second Woods Nativity", a night painting with moon and stars, and an overall actual glow in the sky,

      I have many references from satisfied collectors who have purchased my art from the Net.
If you are not delighted you can return the painting for a refund within 30 days.

     Many people have commented that my art looks much better in actuality than it does on digital photos on the Net,  which do not do justice to  the depth and detail.   You can view more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni

Sun Melting Snow, Grand Canyon, with PayPal Link:



Hello all art lovers, blog readers, collectors and friends!   This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the great Hudson River School painters of the nineteenth century.  Now that I live in Sedona, AZ, my subject matter and lighting of the landscape embraces the west and southwest as well as the Hudson Valley.  I have begun painting the Grand  Canyon for a November 2016 exhibit at West of the Moon Gallery in Flagstaff, AZ, the city nearest to this natural wonder.  Due to its altitude of about 7000 feet above sea level, the rim of the Grand Canyon gets snow in the fall and winter, and here you see a little of that snow is left as the strong Arizona sun melts it.

I have painted this view on 18x36" stretched canvas, which is 1-1/2" thick with the painting continued onto the sides of the canvas.   This furthers the 3-dimensional quality of the work, for which I strive in all my paintings by painstaking and time-consuming layering and glazing.

This work is currently in my studio.  It can be purchased for $2750. including FREE SHIPPING to any point in the USA, and can be paid for with PayPal as well as check or money order from a USA-based bank.

I have many references from people who have purchased my art online and have been very satisfied with the art, the packaging and the service.  .

I also accept checks an money orders drawn on USA-based banks.   E-mail me at eperantoni@yahoo.com if you are interested in this. I am happy to show my art in my studio by appointment.

When you purchase a painting from an internet digital photo such as this, you can return it for a refund within 30 days if you are not delighted.  Most people think my art looks better in actuality, when you an see the depth and detail.  .

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.

The painting pictured above is entitled "Catskill Creek" and is in the classic Hudson River School manner.  For many years I lived in the Hudson Valley, not far from the pictured bend in the creek.  This is where I grew to love and take my inspiration from the Hudson River School masters of the nineteenth century, such as Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt and Frederick Church.

This oil is on a 22" x28" stretched canvas, framed in a vintage wide gold frame which brings the painting to approximately 27" x 33" on the wall.   Like all my paintings, it comes to life and looks richer and more lively in actuality than in digital photos on the net.   My techniques of layered and glazed oil painting  create this effect.
