Portrait of an African American Woman on Valentines Day
"Valentine Date"was painted from a model on Valentines Day. She is the most beautiful woman and dressed in red, she seemed to be ready for a romantic dinner for two.
This is a painting about the excitement of shades of red. The canvas background is loosely painted, showing the original sketch, which adds to the energy of the paint. The surface is matte white white which makes the thickly painted colors of the figure stand out. The brushstrokes of thicker paint complement the overall feeling of spontaneity and freedom which contrasts with the repose of the figure herself.
This painting has won several awards in National Juried Exhibitions.

Medium : Acrylic on canvas
Framed: 21"x 17" approx
The painting is being sold framed in a matte black frame, as shown above. The frame is approximately 1" wide and 2" deep. The artwork is ready to hang, including hanging hardware.

Even more striking in person! Really well thought out/careful packaging. Fast delivery. Great communication. The gift I'm most excited to give this holiday. Thanks, Nancy!
This art is unique, perfect! It depicts a calico on there prowl! It is funny though, when I opened the package I was looking at it sideways trying to make sense of it! Then, being so smart, I turned it the correct way and voila! PERFECT!
Ms. Long was amazing to work with. She painted a very intimate picture that I hold close to my heart. She communicated on a consistent basis and was very open to feed back. Wonderful experience and I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Ms. Long.
This works better than I hoped! We love it!
