Happy end-of-February, almost-spring to you art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the Hudson Valley, and in my region this is a happy time for most of us. While I love to paint the magnificent winters in the Hudson Valley, I love painting and being outside even more when the leaves return to the trees and the landscape is a panoply of greens, broken by blue and silver rivers.
I paint the landscape in oil, in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the slightly later Barbizon School of landscape painting. I live and paint mostly in the Hudson Valley of New York State, and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The painting at right is an 8x10" oil on canvas entitled "Trees at Golf Course". It was inspired by the pretty golf course at Woodstock, NY near my studio.
It is currently on exhibit at Green (Gallery), one of several fine art galleries that represent me. This work, in a traditional massive ornate gold frame, is priced $525. Green is at 92 Partition St., Saugerties, NY, near Exit 20 of the New York State Thruway in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Green is open 7 days a week, mostly fromm 11-5. The phone number at Green is 845-247-3812.
I also sell my art from my studio by appointment. My studio is about 2 hrs. north of the NYC metro area, and within a few hours of most points in New England, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
I hope you will read more of my blog posts, dating back to 2007, and will enjoy them. To see more blog posts, click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this page. I would love to hear from you with any questions or comments.
Have a great Sunday.
