Sailboats Above Peekskill

Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a traditional manner inspired by the Hudson River School I live and paint in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State, and delight in peaceful river scenes like the one at right. More of my art can be seen in other blog posts here and on Perantoni My e-mail address is
This work is entitle "Sailboats above Peekskill". Peekskill is a venerable riverfront town on the east bank of the Hudson, about 40 minutes north of New York City. Highway 6 climbs a dramatic bluestone formation overlooking the river and this picturesque bend. On pleasant days sailboating on the river is a delight, and regattas are a regular pastime. The river often looks much as it did in the 1850s, when the Hudson River School of painting was in its heyday.
This painting is on 24x36" stretched canvas. Right now it's in my studio and can be purchased from this blog or viewed by appointment. My studio is a pleasant 2 hour drive north of New York City, 1 hour from Albany and 4 hours from Boston. This work is priced at $3300. and I will consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector.
Some of my art is on view at fine galleries that represent me in New York State and Massachusetts. Please read more blog posts for images and locations of other works, and gallery contact info. Or e-mail me any questions.
On October 12, I will exhibit at the First Annual WJC Art Show in Saugerties, NY, about 10 minutes from Thruway Exit 20. The show will be from 10am-4 pm. If anyone would like to visit this show please let me know and I will send specific directions.
If you purchase any work from my blog without seeing the actual work you can return it within 30 days for a refund if you are less than delighted.
Well, it is a beautiful day and I have more painting to do.
Have a great week and I would love to hear from you,
