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 firstname.lastname@example.org and see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni 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.
