Hello, friends, art lovers and blog readers! Sorry I haven't posted for so long, but August has been a super busy month, firstly with taking advantage of summer opportunities to paint, and also with the Saugerties Art Tour (www.saugertiesarttour.com)
As many of you know, I am a landscape painter who works in oil in the manner of the Hudson River School. I live in the mid-Hudson valley where this uniquely American school of art was born, and every year I love the beauty of this region more, and my love of painting it likewise increases. More of my art is on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Your should see the actual painting in lamplight: it glows!
It is on 11x14" stretched canvas, and framed in a museum quality wide traditional gold frame. It is on exhibit at Berkshire Art Gallery in Great Barrington, Mass. 80 Railroad St., open Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5. It is sensibly priced at $800.
Other galleries that represent me and exhibit my art are:
The Driftwood Gallery, Peekskill, NY; Kaaterskill Fine Arts, Hunter, NY; and Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery, CA. If you prefer to view art in galleries please contact me for further info on these art galleries so you can view my art there.
The Saugerties Studio Tour was August 14-15 and was heavily and enthusiastically attended by tourgoers carrying the free maps we distribute. The maps show the township with the studios numbered, and also color thumbnails of each artist's work.
If you love art and haven't been on one of these tours, you are missing something.
I was kept busy and made a great many new friends. Some people came from out of state.
If you purchase one of my art works from an Internet photo without first seeing the actual piece, 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, as I work in a series of glazes which give the works depth that cannot be captured by digital photography.

Please let me know any questions or comments. I would love to hear from you!
Very best, Ellen
