Discovering Wotan's Throne, and My Exhibit at City Hall, Sedona AZ

Hello art lovers, friends, collectors all!   This is Ellen Perantoni, painter of the landscape in oil, and I apologize for not having posted lately.  I have begun a series of large paintings of the Grand Canyon,  one of the crown jewels of my current home, Arizona.  This oil on canvas shows the formation known as Wotan's Throne within the 200 mile long canyon.   You can see more of my art on and  my e-mail address is

The City of Sedona asked to exhibit some of my art at Sedona City Hall, and this recently finished painting is among those along with 26 of my other paintings.  Sedona Arts & Culture Co-ordinator Nancy Lattanzi is very happy to show and sell  these works by appointment, or possibly by chance depending on when you stop in.  Her phone number is 928-203-5078 and City Hall is open from 8-4 on weekdays excluding holidays.  

This work is on a 36c36" stretched canvas, 1-1/2" deep with the painting continued onto the sides of the canvas.   I am very pleased with the way this striking composition lent itself to an elegant geometry, dramatic composition and fine detail.  It is priced at $6000.

The City Hall exhibit will continue through late April and there will be a reception at City Hall on a date that is not yet determined. I will post the date when it is set.

I hope those of you who are in the region will stop by City Hall to view the paintings.  Thanks again, Nancy!  And please contact me if you have any questions about the exhibit, or wish to view the paintings in my own gallery, Back O' Beyond Gallery/Studio.

I am now working on two more paintings of the Grand Canyon; each is also 36x36".  Have a great week, and I would love to hear from you.

Best, Ellen
