Artist Sue Marrazzo Shares "American Tradition"


This is a mixed media horse painting created recently as a live demo during an Art & Wine Walk here in PA. I did about 80% then and just finished it up in my art studio. It was created on a canvas using handmade papers, found collage papers, a found image, ink, gel medium, liquid medium, silver leaf, lace, notions, acrylic paint, gesso, and more. There is plenty of depth and texture in this work. I wanted to share this horse painting being this is horse racing season. 
Also the horse represents American Tradition, and with this in mind...
Enjoy your American Tradition; and have a very 
Happy Memorial Day with friends and family!

  6. Sue, this is a very cool piece! I really like the way the interplay of all the different elements creates a mood of excitement, just the feeling I would associate with horse racing.
