Blue City People-Rik Long

  • What a stunner! This piece by Rik Long is acrylic on wood and 51.5"x27".

  • Rik is from Andalusia, Alabama and each one of his pieces tells a story. His religious paintings in particular are made using scrap wood and clay from his own yard. He says there are no extra dyes or colors; just the mud. He also works in acrylics and is well known for his scenes of “city people.” Rik is the son of renowned folk artist Woodie Long, a house painter turned artist, whose pieces are included in the permanent collections of museums nationwide and whose paintings have been published in numerous books, as CD covers and accompanying magazine articles in major magazines such as Smithsonian.
