Some Paintings by Sally Young


I saw paintings by Sally Young recently, and enjoyed them so much that I asked her if I could share some of her work on the blog.

Sally lives in NYC and conducts art classes at Greenwich House. It makes perfect sense that she includes classes for children because her work is as imaginative and unrestrained in the way a child’s is, yet with an adult surrealism that delights without cynicism. Delights is the perfect word. There is nothing like a nice surprise.

Ten of her paintings follow. Enjoy.
