A GIFT OF ART BY SUE MARRAZZO

This is one of my favorite mixed media paintings created in my water series. I showed this in 2 venues. I gifted this work to a true "lover" of the fine arts. 
I know it will be truly appreciated by it's new owner. Enjoy!

PAINTING OUTDOORS BY SUE MARRAZZO

Today was the perfect day to get out the encaustic painting supplies and go outdoors. I worked on a few encaustic paintings today. I love to do this outdoors, since I need ventilation for this type of painting. I use beeswax, encaustic paints, and other supplies. I also use a heat gun, hot plate, and sometimes a blow torch. This is one of my NEW completed encaustic paintings from today...

 Title: "Forever A Dreamer"
Medium: Encaustic
Size: 12" x 12"
Substrate: Wood Panel

An Encaustic Painting By Sue Marrazzo

I am also an experimental encaustic painter. This is one medium that you can create a lot of texture with beeswax. I was always an admirer of Jasper Johns and his encaustic works. This is what led me to want to learn this medium. 
It is always new and I love the results. 
This work is currently on exhibit in a local community art exhibit. 

Title: "Depth and Abstraction"
Medium: Encaustic
Substrate: Panel
Size: 14" x 14"
