2011 Summer and Fall Landscape Workshops Forming:

Hello, landscape art lovers and blog readers! This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, with another post which I hope you'll enjoy reading on a winter's morning (or any time that suits). I paint the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and I'm listed in AskArt. My e-mail address is eperantoni@yahoo.com and you an see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
I have met many lovely people though this blog, people who have purchased my art, visited an open studio event or just sent friendly communications about painting. Also painters and beginners who would like to enter upon the absorbing study of this style of painting (which I feel is often sorely neglected).
When I paint, I want it all!
Meaning I am not satisfied with "washes" suggesting nature's miracles; I want to see and "feel" the laciness of leaves, the tumble of water in streams, the slow majestic progression of featherlight towers of cloud across the sky. Such tribute to the fineness of nature's textures is what I aim for in my art and what I work to teach, when I teach others.
I live and paint in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State, where the original Hudson River School master painters worked in the mid 1800s. I paint where Cole and Church painted, and in little known beauty spots I have delightfully discovered for myself in the 25 plus years I have lived in this region.
This is about 2 hrs. north of the NYC metro area and within a few hours of most points in New England, NJ and eastern PA.
I'm now taking registrations for three 3-day workshops in 2011: June 3-5, July 8-10 and October 7-9 (my fall color workshop!).
I am limiting each workshop to 4 participants ; I do not aim to make a financial killing but to give close personal attention to each student. I feel I in turn benefit from working with others.
Each workshop is $325. If you are interested please e-mail me at eperantoni@yahoo.com and I will e-mail you a registration form.
I would also be delighted to answer your questions. For those who need lodging info I can refer you to google sites where you can find convenient lodgings.
The painting image at right is detail from one of my typical works. This painting was sold a while ago to one of the first collectors who saw it.
I invite you to browse this blog further and see more posts: "Older Posts" at the bottom of this page" going back to 2007. On www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni you can also see comments from people I have come to know and have done business with.
Have a great day! And those of you sharing a northeast winter with me, keep warm!
Very best, Ellen
