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.

Most people feel my art looks better in actuality, as the depth and detail does not fully show up in digital photos on the Internet.

E-mail any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to hear from you.

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.
Have a great week! Mark at the Alt Gallery would be happy to see you.
