This watercolor print by Nicole DeSanti is of St. Clair Annex in Watch Hill. The building sits in the downtown village in the affluent coastal neighborhood of Westerly, Rhode Island. It is located in the most-southwestern point in all of Rhode Island close to the Connecticut border.

Famous people spend their summers in Watch Hill, as the area has long been a secret hideaway for celebrities. Clark Gable, for example, had a summer home in the area and spent a lot of time at Narragansett House, now called Watch Hill Inn, and the Olympia Tea Room in the 1940s. Other notable residents in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s include Henry Ford, Douglas Fairbanks, Grouch Marx, and Jean Harlow -many locals have stories about the hotels, restaurants, and shops they used to frequent. Frank Sinatra was a well-known vacationer, as well. In recent years, Taylor Swift had a home in this gorgeous seaside locale. New Englanders flock to this town in the summer and it's hard to resist a stop at St. Clair Annex.

Print: 10" x 8"

About the Artist:

Nicole resides in the foothills of Connecticut. She has been influenced by the New England landscape from an early age. She loves the rolling hills and big barns that dot our gorgeous countryside. You’ll often see barns and New England scenes within her art.

She prefers to paint watercolor or gouache as a medium but dabbles in acrylic and oil on canvas. She is mostly known for her whimsical house paintings.

Before she became a full-time artist she was a writer for the Connecticut Post and Litchfield Magazine. She is a social media influencer for her brand New England Weekender, sharing the best places to eat, stay & play across New England through photography and storytelling.

She is forever grateful to the people in her life who influenced and encouraged my career in the arts. It wasn’t until I became a mom of twins that I felt the courage to pursue painting full time. I believe that life has a certain way of providing obstacles and circumstances to help you on your divine path.
