Happy summer, art lovers and blog readers! This is Ellen Perantoni, Hudson Valley resident and painter of the local landscape in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School tradition. I paint in a studio in the Catskills between the towns of Woodstock and Saugerties, and am preparing for a studio tour/sale in August with paintings like this one at right. My e-mail address is email@example.com and you can see more paintings at www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
Saugerties is right on the Hudson River and is marked by the Saugerties Lighthouse; there is a most romantic half mile path along the shoreline to reach the Lighthouse, which sits on its own tiny island out in the water.
Walking the path one morning when the tide was low, I was captivated by the view to my left and the way it appeared in the pinkish, pearly light and the way it tinted the clouds. So I painted this painting (I often carry my materials with me in case of just such a happy occurrence.)
This painting is on 8x10" stretched canvas. I have framed it in it a wide handsome gold frame which brings it to almost 14x16" on the wall. As framed it is priced at $575. I would consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector.
Subject to prior sale, this painting will probably be in my studio for the annual Town of Saugerties Studio Tour, this year to be held on August 14-15. From 10-6 each day, 40 studios in the township open to the public. The artists publish a free full color tour map that makes it easy and fun to find the studios you want to see.
My studio is about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area and within a few hours of most points in New England, NJ, and eastern PA. For more info or your free map please contact me at the above e-mail address.
I also show my art by appointment at other times. If you purchase a work from an Internet photo, as from this blog, without seeing the original you can return it within 30 days if you are not delighted. Most people are.
I accept PayPal and checks drawn on US-based banks.
Well, the light is still good and I am going to paint some more. I hope you'll read more blog posts--which you can see by clicking Older Posts at the bottom of this page.
I would love to hear from you.
All the best, Ellen
