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.

Receding Fields, Distant Mountains

Hello, art lovers, blog readers and friends!  This is Ellen Perantoni again, posting my most recent panoramic painting in oil from Sedona AZ, my home and studio location since the beginning of this year.  The horizontal oval shape of this view suggests the immensity of the red rock country of this region while giving it a touch of mystery.  I paint the landscape of this region in its sunlit colors and deep shadows in a detailed manner inspired by the early landscape painters of America.  You can see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and me e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

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.

Back O'Beyond Studio, Sedona -- New Home of My Art:

Hello, art lovers and blog readers!   Thsi is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil.   Almost 6 months ago, I relocated home and studio to Sedona AZ,  location of the world famous red rocks -- "Like living in the Grand Canyon"  is the way one of my neighbors describes it.  And this is what I've been painting.  The panoramic painting to the right of my head in this photo is a view from the gallery part of my studio, where I am sitting on a corner bench that came with the space.   I paint the landscape in oil in a manner honoring the Hudson River School tradition, and now the bright colors, strong light and rugged shapes of Sedona are working their own spells upon my art.

The lovely 600 sq. ft.gallery  space above is Back O' Beyond Gallery, and I'm opening the gallery to the public at least one afternoon a week, usually Saturday. : And other times, by appointment.  The address is 141 Back O'Beyond Circle, Sedona AZ 86336.   The short drive to the Gallery from the main road is simply spectacular,  as it passes closely by world famous Cathedral Rock.  You will enjoy the short drive and it will put you in the mood to enjoy the art.   Just turn onto Back O'Beyond Road from Rt. 179 and drive until the Road becomes Back O'Beyond Circle.  

You can see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni  and my e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

The paintings in the above photo range from $450 to $1500. as framed..  The studio  has some oil studies and limited edition prints.  Prices start about $50. for unframed prints and go up to $4000. for large oil  panoramas.  Some of my newer paintings are on 1-1/2" thick canvas with the painting continued onto the sides, so they do not have to be framed if you do not want frames..

If you cannot come to the studio, please browse the other posts on this blog, which goes back to 2007.  I will ship any of the works in the blogs -- those that are not already sold -- and if you order a painting form 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 think my art looks better in actuality, because digital photos do not capture their true depth and detail.  . 

There is a somber note in all this joy and beauty, however.   Today the "Slide Fire"  still rages 18 miles to the north of this paradise, in irreplaceable Oak Creek Canyon.  I have been there many times, and in fact started a painting of the canyon about 2 weeks ago.   I hope much of its beauty will remain untouched and that the 1000+ brave firefighters will soon have the Slide Fire out..  They expect 23,000 acres of canyon forest will be consumed before this can be done.

 Fortunately,  there has been no loss f life or property from the fire and I pray that does not change. I will continue to celebrate the beauty of Oak Creek Canyon with my landscape art.   The most accessible parts of the canyon are being saved by over 1000 firefighters. 

Enjoy the blog -- click on "Older Posts" to read posts going back to 2007.  And when you go camping or picnicking this summer --please be careful with your campfires.

I would love to hear from you.

Best, Ellen

View from San Miguel Hill

         Hello, art lovers and blog readers!   This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil,  posting another painting of the magnificent red rock country of Sedona AZ.  This painting, still drying in my studio, is a morning view from a nearby residential road, hard as that may be to believe.     The scenery is something you would expect to see in a national park.   As I have always loved painting in the manner of the the Hudson River School,  I now delight in capturing the red rocks in their detail.  It is enough to make one develop an interest in geology.  And the sunsets and sunrises are hard to describe.

           So I undertake to do it with a brush.   You can see more of my Sedona and other paintings on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com

           This painting  is on 18x36" stretched canvas that is 1-1/2" thick with the painting continued onto the sides.   So it can be displayed without a frame (or with a frame if you prefer.)  The painting is priced at $2900.    

         If you purchase a painting from an internet photo you can return it for a refund if you are less than delighted.  Most people think my art looks better in actuality, when you can see the depth and detail.

        Or if you wish you can make an appointment to see my art in my studio before purchase.   My Sedona studio is located about 100 miles from Phoenix and less than 200 miles  from Las Vegas. 

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

                 Ellen

        Well, it is a beautiful sparkling day and  I am gong to paint some more.  Have a great weekend!
