Sally Adams
Shelby Township, Michigan

Sally Adams received a set of oil paints for Christmas when she was 15 years old and has loved art ever since. You can always find her with a camera strapped around her neck, as most of her art is inspired by photos she takes in her daily routine. Her intention is to extract simple beauty from what surrounds us. Although her instinct is to always add more detail, the advice from an art teacher that “less is more” rings in her ears. The result is art that appears intimate, serene, and hazy from a distance, but is intricate and deliberate up close. Sally’s studio companion, Pickledog, keeps her company as she works. “He gets me up and going every morning, reminding me that a good breakfast and daily walk with Mother Nature are essential for raising endorphins and clearing the mind to create."

Comments About This Piece

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
