Welcome to Painted Hill Studio, featuring artwork by Renée (Ré) St. Peter, NWWS.Watercolor of the grain elevator in Fort Shaw, Montana

See my work at the GroWashington/88 Keys Gallery (3013 Colby Ave, Everett, WA 98201). These paintings and more will be at the gallery through December 19th. I’ll be there Saturday, Nov. 11th from 11AM-3PM for an “Artist in Action” day. Bring your watercolor questions!

Thank you for your interest in my art. While my main subject is horses, you’ll also find portraits of people, pets, rust and whatever else catches my eye. Recently, I’ve been painting more and more landscapes, often using a wide, short format (or flipping it vertically for a tall, narrow presentation, as seen in “Rex is King”).

Most of my work is done in watercolor, but I’m also trying to get more practice in the sketchbook. Check out my blog for sketches, finished paintings, work-in-progress shots, “art shares,” and other bits of interest.

A Milestone Reached The excitement of achieving Signature status in the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) has been joined by that of gallery representation! I am delighted to be a member of the Parklane Gallery family. Visit Parklane’s website.
