We'll be one of 45+ studios open at Keystone Art Space.
I love this photo by the talented Louise Flores. It's on the same street as my studio - you can see where I get some of my painting inspirations from - and we staged it with the red cloth to mimic one of my paintings!
While I like to celebrate women EVERY day, it's still nice to acknowledge this special day.

Here's me talking about my process, inspirations & color palette at the Artist Talk on Feb. 17:
Join me tomorrow for my Curator Talk where I will walk you through the show, Memories on Location, talking about why I chose each artist and details about specific pieces. Here's a teaser:
I'm so proud of how Memories on Location turned out! Not only did the work look good together in this industrial space, but each individual artist shone. As one of them put it, "You can tell these artists are committed to exceptional craftsmanship."

My painting for Cratedigger Vol. 2 was inspired by U2's The Joshua Tree album.Read More

I'm so excited to announce that I'm the Featured Artist on the new blog, Pop Ellay. Check out the full interview: Christine Rasmussen and the Places She Used to Go.
"In Christine’s work, you can see poignant areas of shadow and very careful divisions of lonely space. These spaces generate a sense of interior self-doubt and self-searching, said [Linda] Vallejo.
“She has an intense understanding of the secret language of our interior lives,” Vallejo noted." READ FULL ARTICLE
What does "Pickles Galore" mean anyway? Answer: absolutely nothing. Here's how my fellow exhibiting artists and I came up with the name - we all wrote two random words on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, and picked out various combinations. I guess we were in a silly mood that day, because the best combination was "Pickles Galore."
This show features 9 artists who I have been meeting with once a month for the past year in a Peer Critique Group. What's a "peer critique group"? Good question. This is a group of artists who gets together and gives constructive criticism about each other's art. This particular group is made up of LAAA/Gallery 825 members.
The show is curated by the fantastic Linda Vallejo, who is picking the work tomorrow, so we'll all be surprised on Sunday!
Come join us!

The Artist Reception is on Saturday October 22, all event details here. I'm excited to be showing in Culver City, an art haven in the middle of Los Angeles, and at this wonderful venue. Also, I love the combination of my work with Dale's - we both love vibrant color and make work dealing with memory and loss, but in completely different ways. Should be exciting - join me!
Wow. Wonderful show at Lamperouge Gallery yesterday!
So pleased to be a part of it, and surprised (in a good way!) to get a whole wall to display 6 of my new paintings. Feeling incredibly grateful to everyone who was able to make it out, and all the kind comments about my work since.
The show was a big success due to the amazing artists involved - the fabulous Michael Frietas Wood curated the show, and he along with Beanie Kaman, Peggy Sivert, Ben Zask, Gilles d'Amecourt, Kristan Marvell & Tracey Weiss did an excellent job installing the exhibit. The show was balanced and created a flow through the beautiful converted industrial venue. Not an easy feat when you are trying to give equal weight to 15 artists with many color palettes, subject matter and both sculptural and 2D elements!
Like many of the viewers, I only wish this magical and poignant show could have continued for more than one day. View more photos on the Facebook event page.
I'm happy to invite you to see a couple of my new paintings, alongside 14 other talented artists, in Solidarity: a pop-up group show.
"This group of artists is a reflection of the great diversity that makes up this city...the exhibition encompasses the energy of Los Angeles, demonstrating a shared harmony and unity - a working dialog of acceptance - that comes from all its communities."
