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!

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...

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
