Blue Mountain Panorama
Season's Greetings! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the slightly later Barbizon School as pioneered by George Inness. I live and paint in the Hudson Valley of New York State, where I am fortunate to be in the midst of constant inspiration for my works. I also paint "View Portraits" (a term I have copyrighted) on commission.
My e-mail address is email@example.com
I hope you enojoy this blog post, and read my other, previous blog posts.
The view in the painting at right, "Blue Mountain Panorama", is an actual view from one of the mountain roads near my home in the Catskill Mountain foothills east of the Hudson. For a memorable couple of weeks in the fall, the foliage flames into gorgeous colors and I was able to capture this view on canvas. There is a former farm in the foreground which has turned into meadow, with forest and the silhouette of Round Top Mountain in the distance.
This work is on 6x12" stretched canvas. The first photo shows some detail, and at this close-up range I could not prevent a bit of glare from the glossy varnish. The actual painting is not glare-y; the varnish brings out the pretty detail and depth of the work.
This work is being placed with a collector by Green, a fine Saugerties, NY gallery which represents my work. Green has more of my art on exhibit. For further info on Green please contact me.
I also show my art in my studio by appointment. I'm about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area, 1 hr. from Albany and 4 hrs. from the Boston area.
My work also hangs in several fine galleries, in Dutchess and Westchester Counties of NYS and in Mass. Periodically I exhibit in Ulster and Greene Counties, and at other locations. Please contact me or read other blog posts for gallery addresses and contact info.
I hope you enjoy my blog posts.
I would love to hear from you.
Have great holidays,
