This peaceful day across from a filed where two cattle have strayed seems like a memory from from another time but, delightfully, it isn't. I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil inspired by the Hudson River School, and this painting is drying in my studio. I paint the same Hudson Valley that was first immortalized by masters Thomas Cole, Sanford Gifford, and Frederick E. Church. Though the cities and villages have grown, most of the Hudson Valley remains the same today. In my world, pastoral scenes like this are commonplace. More of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
This painting is on 14x18" stretched canvas. I plan to frame it in a traditional wide gold frame, also reminiscent of the 19th century. In this photo, the right side of the painting appears lighter than the left, but this is not the case in the actual painting. This work can be purchased unframed from my studio for $1450. and I will frame it to your taste. I would consider a payment plan or a fair offer from a sincere collector.
This work may be consigned to one of the fine art galleries that represent me: Kaaterskill Fine Arts, Hunter, NY; Green (Gallery), Saugerties, NY; The Driftwood Gallery, Peekskill, NY. I also show my art at my studio by appointment; the studio is in the mid-Hudson Valley about 2 hours north of the NYC metro area, and within a few hours of most points in New England, NJ and eastern PA.
If you purchase a painting from an Internet photo without first seeing the painting you can return it within 30 days if you are not delighted.
Spring weather has arrived early in the Hudson Valley this year, and lush green foliage like this may not be far in the future. I paint every season, but am looking forward to this spring.

Hello, art lovers and blog readers! Spring is starting here in the Hudson Valley of New York State. And it is welcomed! I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School, those magnificent 19th century tributes to nature. I live and paint here in the region immortalized by the works of Thomas Cole, Frederick E. Church and others. And I am happy to say that much of the scenery here is still as gorgeous as it was then. This is what I especially love to paint.
You can see more of my art at www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is email@example.com
As you can see in this painting, I strive to paint each leaf and highlight of these views. I have many favorite view spots in this beautiful region, and am often discovering others.
I can also paint your favorite view in a View Portrait (a term I have copyrighted) at your favorite time of day and time of year. I can paint it en plein air (outdoors, on site) or from photos if you wish.
The painting shown here is 24x36" on stretched canvas, and I have framed it in a museum quality, wide traditional gold frame that brings the size to over 32x44" on the wall. As framed, this work is $3700.
This work and others can be seen by appointment in my studio, which 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.
If you purchase my art from an Internet photo and are less than delighted when it arrives, you can return it for a refund within 30 days. Some of my collectors who have purchased my paintings online photos have posted about them on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni
