After earning dual Master's degrees in Theatre and Teaching, I got my start in the world of painting later in life, but when the opportunity presented itself to take the chance and open my own portrait studio here in beautiful Colorado, I jumped at the chance to be able to share my abilities with others through technology. Thus, RJLDesignZ.com was born and, to date, I have paintings hanging on walls and galleries THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!
My philosophy is simple: Never rest on your past. I know that my reputation is only as good as my last painting. I excel at the fine art of handling even the most difficult of subject matter and turning that into a piece of art you will cherish forever. In the studio, I'm in total control, my imagination takes flight. Hire me, let me create something for you and you'll never see the world the same again.
You have my name on it!
My name is Rick Long and I am an artist from Littleton, Colorado! Watercolor portraits are not something I produce, They become something that produces a change both in myself, and those who witness my artwork. In all my years and thousands of sketches and paintings, I have yet to finish a project and not end up looking at the world with some new perspective, in some new , wonderful way. The canvas captures what the human eye leaves behind. I consider myself nothing less than a chronicler of the human spirit, for better or worse. When you see my paintings, I think you'll agree.
