Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, i n a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School of the 19th century. I live and paint in the Hudson Valley of New York State, where it all began. My e-mail address is email@example.com and more of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
This interestingly shaped small painting is one of my recent works, approximately 9x7-1/2 inches not including the frame. Framed, it's about 9x11-1/2 inches on the wall. I painted it on artist's canvas board.
This unique small work was recently sold, but there are always others in various stages of completion. I show my art by appointment at my studio also, and I am represented by five fine galleries which exhibit my art on their walls. If you like to view art in galleries please ask me for the name of the gallery nearest you, or read my other blog posts for info on my galleries.
My studio is a pleasant 2 hour drive from the NYC metro area and 4 hours or less from other points in New England and upstate New York.
If you purchase a work from an internet photo without seeing the original, you can return it within 30 days for a refund if you are not delighted.
Well, I am off to enjoy this lovely summer day by painting some more.
Have a great weekend!

Hi, this is Ellen Perantoni, a landscape painter in oil inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School. I live and paint in the riverfront/mountain town of Saugerties. It's on the west bank of the Hudson, in the foothills of the fabled Catskill Mountains. And that is where I just had a wonderful weekend. Here's a pic of a young family viewing one of my paintings on the deck (it was a fabulous day for this occasion.
I want to thank everyone who came and made the weekend such a fun occasion and such a success. The visitors from places hours away, the neighbors I met for the first time, and returning collectors who have become friends.
My studio tour and sale was part of a townwide event, the 6th annual Saugerties Artists Tour consisting of 24 artist studios open to the public throughout the Town of Saugerties.
A good time was had by all and the weather was fine except for a brief shower Saturday.
If anyone missed the tour and would like to view my work by appointment at my studio, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can see more of my work in other posts on this blog and at www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
I also sell at fine galleries and directly from this blog. If you purchase a painting from an internet photo you can return it within 30 days for a refund.
I hope you will read more of these blog posts. And I would love to hear from any of you.

Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, inspired by the masters of the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School. I live and paint in the Hudson Valley, where that uniquely American school of art all began. My e-mail address is email@example.com and more of my work is on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
This canvas is 16x20" and framed as shown in a fine museum quality carved wood frame, which brings it size on the wall to about 24x28".
I will have this work at my studio tour and sale this coming weekend, August 16-17. The studio will be open to the public both days, Saturday and Sunday from 10-5. My studio is in the Hudson Riverfront town of Saugerties, New York, about 7 miles from the river in the foothills of the fabled Catskill Mountains. It's a lovely 2 hour ride from the NYC metro area, 1 hour from Albany, and a couple of hours from most points in southern New England. Please contact me for a map if you would like to attend.
I also sell from this blog--if you purchase a work from an Internet photo without seeing the original, you can return it within 30 days for a refund.
I hope you'll also read my other blog posts. Some of those paintings are sold but some are still available.
I love to her from people who love this type of art.
Have a great week, and maybe I will see you soon!
