Take it as a compliment OP, make her post photos of it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc., get your friends to share it... get some publicity out of your 10+hours of work! Or, your roomie's just playing around...
It gives her an easier time getting it back if she contacts authorities, which is what OP should do if the roommate really won't return it. If someone picked up a few hundred dollars of yours and decided it was theirs you wouldn't let them get away with it; guard your paintings the same way, OP. If the roommate won't give it back, call the cops. You have the paint at least and the roommate can't have any proof that it's theirs.
Like others have said before me OP, just sign your work, and then on the back write "Property of (insert your full name here)" that way there can be no possible confusion and in the event your roommate attempts to call the police or steal it again and you need to call the police, there will be no question as to whom the painting belongs to. Oh, and I'd gtfo ASAP lol sounds like your roommate is crazy.
I say while OP's room mate is sleeping, or maybe when she leaves for work, OP should proceed to sign the artwork to prove who's it is and then when the roommate gets back, go on to retrieve the painting. At least if authorities are called OP will have proof of who it belongs to with the signature.
Step 1: walk over to the painting Step 2: pick it up Tadaaaa, you now have the painting.
