A show of new watercolors by Sutter Creek artist, Julie Trail, will be at Gallery 10 for the month of April.
Julie found time after retiring from classroom teaching to pursue her love of painting. She studies with accomplished artists to discover what makes a quality work of art and to learn the many techniques that make watercolor a fascinating and exciting medium for a painter.
“It’s an ongoing process, learning to be a painter,” Julie reminds herself and her watercolor students every day. “And its hard work!” It’s a work Julie loves. She pays close attention to artwork throughout history to learn why some paintings strike us with their power and influence. Exploring new ways to allow watercolor painting to celebrate a landscape motif is Julie’s ongoing pleasure.
She is a committed landscape painter, and she feels very fortunate to live in such a beautiful area as the foothills of Northern California. “Natural beauty surrounds us! Do we pay attention as we go about our daily lives?” Julie asks. She hopes to draw everyone’s attention to the views, large and small, wilderness, wildlife, or historic structures that are part of our everyday travels throughout gold country.
Julie invites you to visit Gallery 10, 15 Eureka St., Sutter Creek, to see her newest paintings. A reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, April 1, 2-5 P.M. as part of the Amador Art Trek, and everyone is welcome. Gallery hours are Thursday-Monday 11-5. The show will hang all of April.
