Sally Adams
Intermediary, Original Painting

2022

About the Item

Artist Comments
Artist Sally Adams depicts a red cardinal perching on a thin branch. She paints the bird with refined detail and realism. "Its appearance offers some consolation or may just be another vibrant display of nature's beauty in contrast," says Sally. The lightly textured forest green background brings its scarlet red plumage into immediate focus.


About the Artist
Artist Sally Adams produces ethereal scenes with intimate simplicity and clarity of expression. She takes to heart advice given by her childhood mentor that less is more. “I only paint the core components necessary to convey an emotional connection,” says Sally. She recalls creativity being her innate and lifelong passion. Her favorite Christmas present was a set of oil paints with brushes that she still uses to this day. Sally consciously intends to extract beauty from everyday life by recreating fragments of feeling into her compositions. The sights, sounds, and fragrances of nature endlessly inspire and give her stimuli. “Pickledog”, her home studio in Michigan is an ode to her beloved furry companion of 15 years. Oftentimes, she shares the workroom with her daughter, a skilled artist as well, such as her mother.

  • Three Pelicans, Original Painting
    By Emil Morhardt
    Located in San Francisco, CA

    Artist Comments
    Artist Emil Morhardt displays an impressionist portrait of three brown pelicans. The birds sun themselves in the Sea of Cortez against a subtle greenish-blue late afternoon sky. "I hadn't thought about pelicans having a 3D vision like hawks until I was looking over my photos and saw one of the birds staring straight at me," shares Emil. He references his photographs from a National Geographic Zodiac that the pelicans seemed curious about, allowing very close viewing.


    About the Artist
    Emil Morhardt is an acrylic painter from Santa Barbara, California who expresses his passion for birds through realistic acrylic paintings. He paints at home in a studio room that has large windows and a north-facing view of the mountains. He observes the animals from this window, watching roadrunners, foxes, bobcats, deer, and coyote run by. Surrounded by this wildlife, Emil paints bird portraits reminiscent of those by artist John James Audubon. He bases his paintings off hundreds of photographs he takes of birds in the wild and at wildlife recovery centers. Emil captures the freedom and inquisitiveness that birds display in the natural world. Before painting birds, he painted landscapes of San Francisco and the Eastern Sierra. Emil was raised in the high desert of California and learned to paint from his father, who was one of the early California watercolorists...

    Artist Comments
    Artist Emil Morhardt paints a glaucous-winged gull lifting off Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. He paints the bird splashing the crystalline water in detailed realism. "These big gulls are unafraid of brown bears, dodging between their legs to grab morsels," says Emil. He highlights the piece with a silvery edge reflecting a dazzlingly sunny day.
