A Work In Progress By Artist Sue Marrazzo, ISAP, NCS

I am still working on the Experimental Mixed Media Painting that I shared with my Blog viewers recently. I am layering and building colors and textures. The acrylic paints and mediums are in the process of curing and drying. I just wanted to share this step with you. I am so glad to be given some new art supplies to experiment with. I received them as part of an Art Prize! I will share the next painting session soon. This is still a Work In Progress...
