An Art Auction By Sue Marrazzo

This painting was an auction piece for a local charity auction. I love supporting the arts and a good cause. This painting was only shown once, and I decided to donate it. This photo is not the most professional. It was the only shot of it before auction. It had a lot of texture, and I painted it as an abstract earthscape. I hope to create more art in this style in the next few weeks.

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!

This past Saturday, May 10, 2014 was the 
13th Annual ART and Wine Walk in Mechanicsburg, PA.
 I was the guest artist at a local business, Amos Went West.  I had a solo art exhibit, and did a collage demonstration. I created collage art inside, since we had showers off and on. It was great to have so many visitors. I saw some familiar faces and met some new ones. Thanks for all your support!
 Here are some photos from this ART-filled day!

 "Summer Collective" on the easel.
