May at Gallery 10: "A Song of Amador” - New Watercolors by Julie Trail

Julie Trail has been captivated by the beauty of the foothills ever since she first visited Sutter Creek in the early 1990’s. This year she has looked closely into some of the reasons this area is so enticing:  An old tree on New Chicago Road, the rock wall that edges old Eureka Street, ducks taking a rest in an eddy on Sutter Creek at Minnie Provo Park. 

Julie continues to choose watercolor as her first love. “The way the colors merge and mix in a wash is magical, unlike any other medium.  The paint has its own mind, and the artist is always challenged to encourage lovely results,” Julie says. “I am always chasing the perfect interaction between water and color, a never ending pursuit!” 

Always learning, always looking for new ways to express the visual beauty surrounding her, Julie studies other artists, pays attention to why some paintings are classic, why they capture our imagination, what is it that makes a painting beautiful.  She continues to take workshops and travels with her paints to outdoor locations so she can really see what the colors and values are in real life.  She continues to teach watercolor in her studio to adults, and in the classroom to fourth graders through the Arts Council program, Art in the Schools.

Come see Julie’s new collection of paintings at Gallery 10, 15 Eureka Street, Sutter Creek, during the month of May.  A reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, May 4, 2-5 P.M., and you all are welcome to enjoy a beverage of choice and a bite to eat while meeting Julie and browsing the artwork.  Gallery 10 is open Thursday-Monday, 11-5 P.M.
