Limted Edition Signed Prints on Canvas

Hello, all! This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in the style of the Hudson River School. I live and paint in Hudson River School country, in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains about 100 miles north of New York City. And what a beautiful place it is! The image at right is an especially dramatic view of the same Kaaterskill Falls that attracted Hudson River School master Thomas Cole and other nineteen century giants. This is the way this magical place looks in early fall when the glorious gold color of the autumn leaves adds to the beauty. I did the original oil painting about 3 years ago and a collector snapped it up right away. (This is good reason to contact me right away if you see an art work here that interests you. .) USA copyright law entitles me to use the image for other things, such as signed and numbered Limited Edition prints. Printing technology has made it possible to reproduce the image on canvas, with a result that looks very much like the actual oil painting. Please note the fine detail in the second photo. This framed print is part of a Limited Edition of 50 prints on 11x14" hand stretched canvas. Framed as you see here, it is about 14 x 17" on the wall. This particular print is number 14 of this edition, and I have signed and numbered it on front and back. Unlike the original painting which sold for a four figure price, this print as framed in a high quality wood frame is $225. This print is currently in my studio. You can see the actual print and others by appointment in my studio if you like. If you order this print or any of my works from an internet photo without first seeing the original you can return it within 30 days if you are not delighted, in the same condition in which you purchased it. You can contact me at and see more of my art on Many of my painting images can be reproduced as prints on canvas, so ask if there is another one you particularly like. I also have Limited Edition prints on paper. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and have time to read more posts; I stated posting here in 2007.

Fall Reflections on the Lower Stream

Hello, art lovers and blog readers! Fall is approaching in this neck of the woods, and with it the magnificent fall foliage colors the Hudson Valley and New England are known for. I am Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil in the manner of the Hudson River School. This painting I am posting today is an example of the beauty that surrounds my Hudson Valley home in the fall; I see this view whenever I drive over a certain bridge on the way to do my grocery shopping. What a lift I get! This blog is about my artwork, with art chat and purchase info. Also for chat about the Hudson River School of art in general and its masters that have gone before. The locales painted by giants Frederick Church and Thomas Cole and others are not far from where I live and paint, and they are still beautiful. More of my art can be seen on and my e-mail address is The painting at right is entitled "Fall Reflections on the Lower Stream" and it is an 18x24" oil on stretched canvas. I have framed it in a bronzed gold museum quality frame and the framed size is about 30x36" on the wall.  This painting has been sold to a collector.  I also have art on exhibit in several fine galleries in the area. My studio is about 2 hours from the NYC metro area and my art is on exhibit in other Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain locations. Contact me for specifics.  I hope you will read more of these blog posts. To see older posts going back to 2007 click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this page. Have a great week! Ellen
