Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School as exemplified by George Inness. I live and paint in the Hudson Valley of New York State, surrounded by the same scenery that inspired the nineteenth century masters of this art movement (the first exclusively American school of art). This blog contains painting images, art chat and purchase info. My work is available directly from me through this blog or by appointment at my studio. And also at selected fine art galleries in New York State, New England and California. For gallery locations read more of these blog posts. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and you can see more art images on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
The image at right shows one of the many quiet, picturesque inlets on the east bank of the Hudson as sunset approaches late on a summer's day. There is a feeling of timelessness about the scene.
The painting is framed in a museum quality heavy hardwood frame that brings the paintings to about 11-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches on the wall. The painting on stretched canvas is 5x7". It has been sold to a collector, but I usually have a number of paintings this size in this style frame (though they sell quickly) and they look nice displayed in pairs or groups.
If you purchase my art from an Internet photo you can return it within 30 days if you are not delighted. Most people feel my art looks better in actuality than in dot matrix digital photos on the net.
Or you can make an appointment to view my art at my studio, about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area and within a few hours of most points in New England, NJ and PA.
For a gallery list giving locations and contact info on galleries that have my art on exhibit, please click on Older Posts at the bottom of this web page.
Starting March 26, 2010 there will be a solo show of my art at Green (gallery) at 92 Partition St., Saugerties, NY near my home and studio. Green is open every day from 10-6 and their phone number is 845-247-3812. Some of the unsold art in these blog posts will be at the exhibit, plus other paintings completely new to the market.
Contact Pat or Charlie at Green and they will be delighted to see you.
Well, a beautiful clear light is shining today and I am anxious to start paintings. have a wonderful weekend, all! and I would love to hear from you.
