Sally McDevitt’s passion for art was evident at an early age, yet throughout her life her painting was merely a hobby. She often gave her paintings to friends & family members as gifts, but did not attempt to become known to the public until she retired from the business world & offered paintings to be shown at Weems Gallery.
Working in oils & acrylics, McDevitt captures the New Mexico landscape in a realistic style. Her window-sized paintings bring the outdoors in & wispy clouds in bold blue skies virtually drift across the canvas. Inspired by the region’s enchanting natural light, McDevitt’s tranquil landscapes of boulders, arroyos & prickly pear blossoms are rendered dramatic by their stoic presence. Sally McDevitt’s style is fully-formed & consistently regal.
