A piece by Marilyn Brinker

Long is a plein aire painter who works with graphite, Intaglio printmaking, pastel, and oil and acrylic paint. "My paintings allow a viewer to look into another world or somewhere they might never have been before or it may be reminiscent of a favorite place," said Long.

Brinker creates through mixed media and photography. "My current work is an expression of the whimsical side of me, my inner child," said Brinker. "My work usually has a subtle message. Everything I create has a universal appeal because it's what we see and feel in our lives."
