Hello, art lovers and blog readers! I guess you are getting ready for the holiday season and I am too. The leaves have fallen from the trees here in the Hudson Valley, but one can always remember the soft afternoons of summer, and views such as this glimpse of afternoon sun on a still quarry pond. A friend of my family is fortunate enough to own this beautiful place, and as a landscape painter I was lucky enough to be able to capture this view. The fine detail of the foliage and highlights on the water cannot be fully appreciated from these digital Internet photos.
I am Ellen Perantoni, and I often paint the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School and the slightly later Barbizon School of the 1800s. This blog consists of my art images, art chat, and licensing and purchase info for those who are interested. You can see more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to hear from you.
This painting is on 8x16" stretched canvas in a museum quality carved hardwood frame. On the wall it measures almost 14x22". It is now hanging in my studio and is priced at $900. I would consider a payment plan/fair offer from a sincere collector. My art is also on display in fine galleries; contact me for the gallery nearest you.
Should you purchase my art from an Internet photo without seeing the original, you can return it for refund within 30 days if you are not delighted. References are available from collectors who have purchased my work over the Internet. Most people find my work looks better in actuality because digital photos do not show the depth and detail of my technique.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
