This week I had the privilege of speaking with painter Chris Long, whose gorgeous work I discovered on
Born and raised in CT, Long earned a degree from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Art in 2000. After several years of exhibiting and teaching figurative sculpture throughout New England, he took to the road in an RV with his family in 2008. After a couple of years of traveling, he had the impulse to switch mediums (which prior to this point he vehemently avoided) and started painting and selling his work in New Orleans at the French Market and on Frenchmen Street.
He currently paints from the iPhone photos his wife takes as they travel across the country.
