Immensity in Sedona

Hello art lovers, friends and blog readers!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School painters of the nineteenth century.  Now painting the wonderful red rock landscape of Sedona AZ.   In this harmony of color in the clear air I also endeavor to find a bit of mystery.   The view in this painting is part reality and part imagination as I paint a panorama that extends further than the eye can see.  It is currently drying in my studio.  More of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

This work is executed on a stretched canvas 12x36" which is 1-1/2" thick, with the view continued onto the sides of the canvas.   It seems to float off the wall directly at the viewer.  This is partly because of the view on the sides  and partly because of the in-depth style in which I paint.   It is priced at $1500.

If you would like to see this or any of my other art at my Sedona studio I will be happy to show it by appointment.  Or, if you purchase a work from a digital Internet photo you can return it for a refund within 30 days if you are less than delighted.  Most people think my art looks a lot better in actuality;  you cannot really appreciate the depth and detail from a digital dot-matrix photo.

Have fun!  I would love to hear from you.

Best, Ellen

Anthropomorphism in Sedona:



       Happy New Year, friends, collectors, all!   This is Ellen Perantoi, painter of the landscape in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School of the nineteenth century, unsurpassed in its reverence for natural beauty.   Now that my home and studio are in the red rock country of Sedona AZ,  I've acquired the local penchant for naming extraordinary rock formations after human and animal forms.   I see the above formations daily on the road from my home into town:  a "face" with an open "mouth" that reminds me of a seventies crooner with lots of hair,, and a frog's face peeking out from the bushes at the crest of a ridge.  These have inspired the two oil paintings above:  "Rock Face along Back O' Beyond Road" and "Frog on Back O'Beyond Road.".

      Both paintings are currently in my studio, just dried and framed.  My e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com  and you can view more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni

      The "Rock Face" painting is on 12x16" stretched canvas, framed in a tarnished gold wide wood frame as above.  The frame brings it to about 20x24" on the wall.  It is priced $950.  and I would consider a payment plan/respectful offer.   The smaller "Frog" painting is on 10x10" stretched canvas and is about 12x12" as framed, on the wall.  It is priced $475.

      I will be happy to show these and other paintings in my gallery/studio by appointment.  If you purchase a painting from a digital Internet photo without first seeing the original, you can return it for a refund within 30 days if you are less than delighted.  Most people think my paintings look a lot better than the photos, with a lot more depth and detail. 

     I have been posting art on this blog since 2007.  To see more, click on

     Very best, Ellen

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
