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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

I would love to hear from you.

My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and you can see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni The recent paintings are of Sedona's red rock country, and my earlier paintings are primarily scenes of the Hudson Valley, NY, where I first learned to love the natural landscape,.
This work is on 16x20" stretched canvas and is currently drying in my studio. Subject to prior sale, it will beon exhibit April 25-27 at my Open Studio here is Sedona, as part of the SVAC Open Studios weekend.

Anyone who is interested in visiting my studio, that weekend or at another time by appointment, please let me know. My e-mail address is still email@example.com, and you can get a quick overview of paintings I currently have available on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
The painting above shows perhaps the most world-famous view in Sedona, the front of Cathedral Rock with its "peace sign" visible. While this is a realistic painting as are most of my paintings, I made are subtle changes in the forms of this natural treasure which I found particularly exciting. The actual painting is clearer and sharper, and the colors are more subtle -- it is my constant lament that digital photos do not capture my art work as well as I would like. Digital photos are a quick and easy way to view art -- this I will grant -- but at the expense of showing the quality. And quality is especially precious to me. I spend a great deal of time getting my paintings as close to perfection as I can manage.
This painting is on 18x24" stretched canvas and is currently hanging in my studio. I have it framed in a simple wide tarnished gold frame that I think sets it off well. The price is $2500.
If you cannot come to the studio and you purchase a work of art from an internet photo you can return it for a refund within 30 days if you are less than delighted. Most people feel my art looks much better in actuality. You can read comments from people who purchased my art over the Internet on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
As many of you know, Sedona AZ is about 2 hours north of Phoenix, AZ and within several house of points in Nev., NM, Utah and CA. It is a fabulous year round vacation spot and late April is especially delightful here. I will be posting more about the Open Studios weekend (you can see a total of 39 area art studios then).
Well, I am going to do some more work on the new studio. Have a great week!
I would love to hear from you.

The above view is still drying in my studio here in Sedona. It is executed on a 16x20" stretched canvas framed as you see in a wide tarnished gold frame that brings the size on the wall to about 24x28". It is priced $1900.
Collectors and friends are welcome to view my art in my studio by appointment. If you purchase a work of art from a digital Internet image you can return it for refund within 30 days if you are not delighted.
