Ellen Perantoni, Painter
I enjoy painting the landscape in all its vigorous beauty and exquisite details and nuances. Until recently I lived and painted in the Hudson Valley of New York State, inspired by the tradition of the Hudson River School, the first uniquely American school of art.
Now I live and paint in Sedona, Arizona, amid what I consider one of the world’s natural wonders and the most beautiful spot in the American southwest outside a national park. As a painter I feel blessed to be able to live here.
It is now February 2014 and I have begun a body of work celebrating the splendor and pleasing colors of this environment. I look forward to exploring the creative paths that whisper (or shout) enticements every time I open my door.
