Welcome to my Gallery of Whimsy

Hello There! You've made it to my website. And who am I? My name is Samantha Long, and I am the nut behind all these whimsical, colorful paintings. I paint in oils in this digital age because I love the tactile nature of a physical piece of work, and I hope you do, too! I personally design each hardwood picture frame to give my paintings a unique look. Working from my home studio in American Fork, Utah on my lovely 5-foot long drafting table, I aspire to bring joy, hope, and whimsy into your homes via originals and prints.

Spring Salon Entry Accepted!

I'm pleased to announce that my painting, "Portrait of a Candy Man was accepted into the Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, Utah. The jurors only took 250 paintings out of the 1,000 entries, so I am tickled that I was selected. The show runs from April 21, 2021 to July 3, 2021. Visit the museum's website here to check the museum's hours and details on the show. There's lots of great paintings to see, not to mention the excellent permanent collection upstairs. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. My painting has sold, so it may be the last chance to get to see it in person.

See my blog post with all juicy details involved in the making of this painting, including a framing disaster I had while attempting this complicated inlay.

Featured Product: "Marigold Girl" Painting

Last year's marigold garden was simply magnificent, so I did a little piece to celebrate. The character was inspired by an old photograph from Edwardian times making this a timeless little piece to add to any art collection.
