Grizzly Cubs in Autumn

Hello friends, art lovers and blog readers!   This ia Ellen Perantoni again, painter of the landscape in oil, posting a recent painting of an expansive scene in the Grand Tetons.  In the foreground it is fall with cottonwood leaves turned gold and the high grasses by the Snake River turning tawny.  Two grizzly cubs explore the flats, looking small against the  huge scale of the scene.   My main artistic influence is the Hudson River School, in this scene the air is so crisp and sharp that the distant peaks seem close.  But they are actually a world away in weather;  at their great height they are in the midst of winter.

My paintngs on this blog cover the United States east and west and back..  I hope you will enjoy the blog (and keep in mind the paintings all look a lot better than these digital photos).  My e-mail address is  and you can see more of my work at a glance on
