Italian word for fresh. A painting made on wet plaster with pigments suspended in water so that the plaster absorbs the colors and the painting becomes part of the wall.

Fresco A Secco, of painting on dry plaster (secco is Italian for dry), was also used, but it is a much less durable technique, and the paint tends to flake off with time. (Frederick Hart)

Today's word is a 'part 2' to yesterday's post. Since my son broke our newer computer that I work and upload photos on I will not be able to post photos until it comes back from the Geek Squad. (Which also means I can not post my painting-a-day blog!!! Amazing how kids can can mortally wound electronics with one blow!)
