Hello friends, collectors, art lovers, all! This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, with a group of small paintings which I believe can be correctly described as vignettes. I vignette can be literary or visual, or even a story, as long as it has the quality of being a brief and tantalizing glimpse of something, usually something beautiful or something worth enjoying and remembering.
I recently found a small group of these frames which create the impression of looking at the enclosed painting through a window, which draw you into the scene and lets you repose contentedly there. These frame styles are not being made any more, as far as I know, so I was delighted to get them and found them happily inspiring.
Each of the above works, all of which are about 11x13" or 9x12" as framed, is priced at $350. including free shipping within the USA. Singly or as a group, they work!
For the convenience and comfort especially of online collectors, I accept PayPal as well as checks and money orders drawn on USA-based banks.
**CLICK ON THE PAYPAL LINKS BELOW EACH PAINTING, below, to purchase the painting from your PayPal account and have it shipped to you FREE.
The links will take you directly to PayPal Checkout, where you will enter your PayPal account information. You will get all PayPal buyer protection features.
If you are not delighted with the painting when it arrives you can return it to me for a refund within 30 days.
to the first painting, "Homage to Brilliance" in the rectangular frame, painted on rigid artist board:
the second painting, "Fall Riverside Cameo" in the cathedral window style frame, painted on rigid artist board:
This painting has been sold to a collector..
to the third painting, (this painting is about 9x12' as framed, on the wall)
"First Woods Nativity" the snow scene in the cathedral window style frame, (think Christmas!) painted on wood, as many nineteenth century Hudson River School paintings were:
the fourth painting,"Cameo of Hope"the sunset in the cathedral window frame, painted on wood:
This painting has been sold to a collector.
to the fifth painting, "Cameo of Grace" a similar sunset in a cathedral window frame (this is the last frame I have in this wonderful style! and no idea if I will ever find another one):
to the sixth painting, "Second Woods Nativity", a night painting with moon and stars, and an overall actual glow in the sky,
I have many references from satisfied collectors who have purchased my art from the Net.
If you are not delighted you can return the painting for a refund within 30 days.
Many people have commented that my art looks much better in actuality than it does on digital photos on the Net, which do not do justice to the depth and detail. You can view more of my art on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni

I would love to hear from you!

Hello all art lovers, blog readers, collectors and friends! This is Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil in a manner inspired by the great Hudson River School painters of the nineteenth century. Now that I live in Sedona, AZ, my subject matter and lighting of the landscape embraces the west and southwest as well as the Hudson Valley. I have begun painting the Grand Canyon for a November 2016 exhibit at West of the Moon Gallery in Flagstaff, AZ, the city nearest to this natural wonder. Due to its altitude of about 7000 feet above sea level, the rim of the Grand Canyon gets snow in the fall and winter, and here you see a little of that snow is left as the strong Arizona sun melts it.
I have painted this view on 18x36" stretched canvas, which is 1-1/2" thick with the painting continued onto the sides of the canvas. This furthers the 3-dimensional quality of the work, for which I strive in all my paintings by painstaking and time-consuming layering and glazing.
This work is currently in my studio. It can be purchased for $2750. including FREE SHIPPING to any point in the USA, and can be paid for with PayPal as well as check or money order from a USA-based bank.
I have many references from people who have purchased my art online and have been very satisfied with the art, the packaging and the service. .

This view in the painting above is from the back of my studio facing toward Airport Mesa, on the other side of which is the famous Airport Mesa vortex, and the local airfield. There are houses tucked here and there among the folds of land, but as a painter who treasures the pristine in nature I have ignored them for the purposes of this painting. When you look at it, you feel the landscape contains nothing but the wind, the rocks, the desert vegetation and the desert animals. You can almost hear the wind sighing gently..

Hello again, art lovers and blog readers! This is Ellen Perantoni again with a newly finished and framed oil painting of Sedona AZ -- with a difference, a minor excursion into fantasy. . I usually paint views pretty much the way they are, in the realistic tradition of Albert Bierstadt and the Hudson River School. But since coming to Arizona I've become enamoured of the mysterious petroglyphs left by early Native American civilizations. Petroglyphs (rock paintings) such as those in this view were normally done in caves and protected locations where they would not be exposed to the elements. But as a creative artist I have here added my own petroglyphs on a rock jumble near the top of Cathedral Rock.
I have been posting art images, art chat and purchase info in this blog since 2007. More of my art can be seen on www.artwanted.com/EllenPerantoni and my e-mail address is email@example.com
This painting can now be seen in my Sedona studio. It is a 12x16" stretched canvas in a museum quality carved wood frame that brings it to almost 20x24" on the wall. It is priced at $925.00. as framed.

The Alt is on the first level of Hillside Plaza, an inspired construction worth seeing in its own right, for the way in which it is built into the curves of the base of the red rock cliffs. The gallery is open 7 days a week and the phone number is 928-554-7840.
The gentle sunset pictured above was inspired by the art of Hudson River School master George Inness, and the sun's track across the still water is a soft luminous gold. The painting is executed on 11x14" stretched canvas, and in its heavy hardwood frame as pictured it is about 20x24" on the wall. It is priced at $900.
I hope those of you within reach of Sedona will stop by the Alt. And I hope those of you far from Sedona -- including those who have followed this blog since I lived in NYS - will consider a visit to Sedona. It is a landscape of unique beauty, as you can see from my "red rock paintings" in this blog.
I have been posting art images, art chat and purchase info on this blog since 2007 and you may enjoy reading the other posts going back to that year. Just click on "Older Posts" at the bottom of this web page.

It is common in this area to name rock formations after recognizable forms, and these remind me a little of the dinosaur necks from the movie "Jurassic Park". In you browse some recent and future posts on this blog you will see more of this anthropomorphism in my art.
This work is on an 8x10" stretched canvas, currently framed as shown and drying in my studio. It is priced at $400. As framed in this wide wood frame in a soft tarnished gold finish, it comes to almost 14x16" on the wall.
I have a larger, 24x30" painting, "Towers", that I created from this study. "Towers" is featured in another post on this blog and can also be purchased.
*** I now accept PAYPAL on this blog site. To purchase this painting as framed for $400. including FREE shipping within the USA, click on this link to go to PayPal checkout::
I also accept checks nd money orders drawn on USA-based banks.
If you would like to see my art in actuality before purchase, I would be pleased to show it by appointment in my studio, which is about 2 hours from Phoenix and a few hours from Las Vegas by car. Sedona is a fabulous place to visit; you just might fall in love and wind up living here as we did.
If you purchase a work from a digital photo on the Internet you can return it for refund within 30 days if you are less than delighted. Most people think my art looks a lot better in actuality, as you can only appreciate the depth and detail when you are looking at the painting itself.

This work is executed on a stretched canvas 12x36" which is 1-1/2" thick, with the view continued onto the sides of the canvas. It seems to float off the wall directly at the viewer. This is partly because of the view on the sides and partly because of the in-depth style in which I paint. It is priced at $1200.
I now accept PayPal for paintings on these blog posts. To purchase the above painting with FREE shipping within the USA, click on this link to go to PayPal checkout:
