For more than thirty years, collectors and sportsmen have been drawn to the spectacular watercolors of Chet Reneson. His paintings have graced the covers of such renowned sporting magazines as Sports Afield, Gray's Sporting Journal, and Sporting Classics.
In 1982, he was rewarded with the distinction being named Artist of the Year by three sporting and conservation organizations: Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited, and the Atlantic Salmon Federation.
A hunter, fly-fisherman, and artist since childhood, Chet Reneson grew up on a farm in rural Connecticut. He made his own boats, decoys, and even fly rods. He attended the University of Hartford Art School, where he met Penny. The two have been married for forty years and live in a 200-year-old Colonial home in Lyme, Connecticut.
"Chet Reneson is a master of watercolor, period. Watercolor is an unforgiving medium, yet with it, Chet captures the imagination of the viewer with his bold colors. We can feel the emotional charge of the sportsman's dream; 'Action coming!'" - Robert Koenke, publisher "Wildlife Art"
