Hello. I am Ellen Perantoni and I paint the landscape in oil, in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the American and European impressionists. I live and work in the Hudson Valley of New York State and I love to paint the beauty around me, which in many places is not changed much by encroaching industry. My blog posts contain painting images, background info about me, the art process, art chat, exhibition and purchase info. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The painting above is entitled "Corona Above the River", a view across the Hudson from the east bank looking west. It is inspired by the rolling land that slopes gently to the river above Rhinebeck. The colors of the actual painting are stronger and more rosy than the photo appears on my monitor. I've framed this 5x7" painting in a massive deep bronze-finish frame that brings its size on the wall to about 11x13". I've just finished the painting and it is for sale; if the buyer wants different framing I can accommodate.
More of my paintings are on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
Some of those paintings are sold but many are available.
This painting was sold by Berkshire Art Gallery, 80 Railroad St., Great Barrington, Massachusetts. More of my art is on view there and they are open every Saturday and Sunday from 12-5. I am represented by galleries in Peekskill, NY; Pine Plains, NY; Pound Ridge, NY; Millbrook, NY; and Great Barrington, Mass. My art can also be ordered through Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery in Bodega Bay, California. For specifics on the gallery nearest you please e-mail me or read more of my blog posts. I've given names, addresses and phone numbers of my current galleries.
Or, I will sell paintings that are not in galleries from this blog. If you wish to visit my studio to view the art, it's located about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area. I am happy to host studio visits by appointment.
If you purchase a painting from the digital image on the Internet, you can return it within 30 days if you are not delighted. As I execute my paintings in a series of delicate glazes, most people feel digital photos do not nearly do them justice and they look much better in actuality.
I accept PayPal and funds drawn on USA-based banks. I am very experienced at packing and shipping art, insured of course.
If you have a favorite view you would like immortalized in a painting, I can paint your view at your favorite time of day and time of year.
I hope you enjoy this blog and will read more posts, and click on the link "Older Posts" at the bottom of this page.
Have a great weekend! I would be delighted to hear from you. Ellen
