The Long View, Catskill Mountaintops
Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I am Ellen Perantoni, landscape painter in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School. These blog posts contain art images, art chat and purchase info.
I live and paint in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State, where the Hudson River School was born. I hope you will enjoy these blog posts, and read more of them going back to 2007 by clicking "Older Posts" at the bottom of this page. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
I will consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector. I accept PayPal and checks and money orders from USA-based banks. If you purchase a painting from an Internet photo and are not delighted with it, you may return it within 30 days for a refund. Most people feel my art looks better in actuality than on the computer, as I paint in a style which imparts considerable depth. rks.https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_button-management
I also show art in my studio by appointment. The studio is about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area and within a few hours of most points in NYS, New England, NJ and Pa.
Please enjoy these blog posts and let me hear from you. Also please visit my galleries (gallery names and locations are mentioned in other blog posts).
Have a great day! Ellen
