Two Departures: Mountain Views, Night and Southwest

Hello, art lovers and blog readers!  This is painter Ellen Perantoni posting my art images again, this time with two landscape paintings that may be somewhat unexpected.   I paint the landscape in a manner inspired by the Hudson River School of the nineteenth century    The first of these two paintings is a view of the Hudson Valley's famous Kaaterskill Clove on a winter night;  i started it before the winter of 2012-13, but just finished it because of my determination to create the best art possible within my capabilities. 

 So here I am, posting a winter scene in the spring, but I like it and that is the important thing.  The second painting does not depict my native New York State or New England, but the magnificent red rock country typical of northern Arizona around Sedona, AZ..  You will be seeing more Sedona images on this blog in the future.  

This blog goes pack to 2007, with art images, art chat and purchase info.  You can view more of my art on and my e-mail address is

The first painting is entitled "Winter Night Study, Kaaterskill Clove".  It is on 8x10" stretched canvas in a wide gold wood frame that brings it to about 14x16" on the wall. The second painting is entitled "Study for Red Range"  and is also 8x10" oil on canvas, about 14x16" on the wall.  

Each of these paintings is $650. and they are currently crying in my studio. I will consider a fair offer/payment plan for a sincere collector.

If you would like to see my art before purchase, I will show it by appointment in my Hudson Valley studio, near NYS Thruway Exit 20 about 100 miles north of the NYC metro area.  It is also within a few hours of most points in New England, NY, NJ and eastern PA.  I am also represented by several fine art galleries in the area. Their names are given elsewhere on this blog. I hope you will want to read most posts, or contact me for info.

If you purchase a painting from an Internet digital photo and are not delighted when it arrives, you can return it for a refund within 30 days.  . Most people think the paintings look better in actuality, as they have a depth that is not fully evident in digital photos.
