August at Gallery 10: "Personal Visions" by Lynn Slade

New Watercolor Collages by Lynn Slade at Gallery 10
August 1 thru August 30, 2019

All new watercolor collages full of texture and color.

“In these paintings I have tried to portray the patterns and color of the environment where I live. 
I’m surrounded by a forest full of conifers, but my favorite tree is the Madrone.  Throughout the year these beautiful trees take on many different personalities and colors.  From dark red, to deep orange, to a creamy white with touches of green; there isn’t a season when these beautiful trees don’t take 
my breath away. Consequently, I paint them often.”

Lynn Slade's Watercolor Collages always have multiple layers of paper, texture, and color. This new collection springs more from Lynn’s imagination than from real life. Colors are chosen to convey the feeling of a place. She choses unusual textures, all hand-made especially for each piece, to add depth and richness to her work.

Lynn’s watercolor collage paintings have won many awards in both local and national exhibitions. Most recently Lynn’s painting “Madrones” has been selected for Splash 21: Capturing Mood due out in August of 2020.  “Madrones” was also accepted into the 2019 San Diego Watercolor Society International Exhibition.

She has been published in Watercolor Artist Magazine, Splash 12, Celebrating Artistic Vision 
and in Eyes On: Landscapes from Blaze Hill Press.  

Personal Visions opening reception is  August 3 at Gallery 10 on Eureka Street in Sutter Creek from 2 to 5 PM Stop by the gallery to experience Lynn’s new collection and meet the artist.
