In my last post, I mentioned that I was underwhelmed by the Old Town Art Fair. While this remains true, I always manage to find one or two artists at each show that are truly special.
Jay Long was one of them. He paints in a style that I don’t often find myself drawn too, but the work is simultaneously whimsical and haunting. Quite a feat!
According to his bio, Long was a punk rocker in the 80’s. Perhaps that’s why I like his work so much.
There’s much, much more on his site.
