Anchorage on the Hudson at Saugerties

Hello and a very happy holiday week to you art lovers and blog readers! This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School masters of the 19th century. I live and paint in the mid-Hudson Valley, where these views remain as beautiful as ever. My e-mail address is and more of my art can be seen on

The painting at right is a view of the Hudson River Shoreline at Saugerties, about 100 miles north of New York City on the west side of the river. A small boat rests quietly at anchor, in the shade on a tranquil summer day. This painting is on a 11x14" stretched canvas, and is in my studio and now available for $700. (plus the cost of framing, if you wish). I do museum quality framing of my traditional paintings, mostly in wide traditional style frames. A bronzed gold would be great for this one.

If you would like to view my art in my studio, I will be happy to show it by appointment. The studio is a few minutes from NYS Thruway Exit 20, within 2 hours of the NYC metro area and a few hours from most points in New England, NJ and eastern PA.

If you purchase a painting from an Internet photo without first seeing the original, you can return it within 30 days for a refund if you are not delighted.

If you prefer to view art in galleries, please read more posts on this blog for info on the galleries that have my art on exhibit. You can contact the galleries or me for directions and contact info.

I also paint "View Portraits' (a term I have copyrighted) of clients' favorite views, in the manner of the Hudson River School. Imagine your favorite scene in a detailed realistic painting looking much like it was painted in the 19th century.
