Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, and I paint the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School. I live and paint in the mid-Hudson Valley, and I frequent and paint many of the same beautiful sites first memorialized by Cole, Church and the other 19th century immortals in this field. These blog posts have art images, art chat and purchase info. I recently was privileged to visit the 19th century Hudson River School exhibit "Remember the Ladies" at the nearby Thomas Cole Historic Site in Catskill, NY, where Hudson River School Thomas Cole lived and painted. The site has a number of paintings by the immortal Thomas Cole, as well as a current exhibit of paintings by women who painted in the Hudson School manner back in the 19th century, such as Eliza Greatorex. From such original masterworks I learn and derive much of my inspiration
These posts go back to March 2007; if you enjoy reading this page please click at the bottom of the page on "Older Posts", for posts and art images back to March 2007. Many works in this blog are sold, but I am always joyfully painting more.
You can also browse www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni for more images, and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org I'd enjoy hearing from you.
The image at right is an oil on canvas entitled "Tranquil Water by the Shore", still drying in my studio. It is on a 12x24" stretched canvas and I plan to frame it in a wide traditional style gold frame which will bring its size to about 20x32" on the wall. I'll probably consign it to one of the art galleries that represent me.
This painting will be priced in the $1800. range. I would consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector.
If you buy a painting from an Internet digital photo and you are not delighted with it when it arrives you may return it for a refund. Most people feel my paintings look better and have more depth in actuality than in Internet photos.
Or, I will show my art in my studio by appointment. The studio is about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area, in the foothills of the Catskill mountains on the west side of the river.
I hope you enjoy this blog. And I'd love to hear from you.
Have a great weekend! Ellen

The painting at right is a panoramic view of of part of the Catskill Mountain wilderness when the land starts to turn tawny in early fall. The four seasons of our beautiful region are a constant inspiration to the landscape painter. This oil on canvas is 12x24" and I plan to frame it in a massive burnished gold traditional frame that will bring its framed size to about 21x33" on the wall. It will probably be consigned to one of the fine galleries that represent me and exhibit my work. The framed work will be priced in the $1800. range.

Hello, art lovers and blog readers! This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School. I live and paint in the Hudson Valley of New York State, amid the same beautiful views first memorialized by the nineteenth century masters such as Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, George Inness et al. The beauty of this region intoxicates and thrills me. Fortunately it has not been developed to the point where the magnificent vistas of the river and in the nearby mountains have been lost.
This blog contains art images, art chat and purchase info. More of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The painting at right is entitled "Peaceful Valley View" and is a sunset view looking west.
Please Note: This photo appears a bit grainy due to a bit of glare from the varnish; the actual painting is not grainy. The digital photo does not capture the subtlety of the art work: the foliage areas that appear blackish in the photo are a dark green with bronze glints from the late day light. The sky at the top is not as blue in the actual painting, more a soft grayish-purplish blue, and the foliage behind the large tree at right is muted and not as green as this photo makes it appear. The colors blend in a mellow and harmonious manner.
This oil on stretched canvas is 16x20", and I will frame it in a museum quality massive traditional gold frame. The framed size on the wall will probably be about 24x28". Or you can choose your own frame if you wish.
Currently this painting is in my studio. It may be consigned to one of the fine galleries that represent me where the price range will be about $1800. framed. I will consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector.
If you purchase a painting from an internet photo and you are not delighted when it arrives, you can return it for a refund with no questions asked. Most people find my paintings look better in actuality.
If your prefer to view actual paintings you can see this painting at my studio which is about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area. I also have paintings on display at such galleries at The Driftwood Gallery, Peekskill; Berkshire Art Gallery, Great Barrington, Mass.; and Green (Gallery) in Saugerties, NY. Please contact me for addresses and hours.
Spring is here and I am inspired and spurred to create more beautiful works of art, many of them en plein air (painted on the spot). It is a beautiful day and I must get ready to start.
Please write me with any questions. For some of the magnificent frame styles I use, please browse other blog post dating back to 2007. Click Older Posts at the bottom of this page.
Have a great day!
