Scroll through slideshow to view some new paintings I’ve finished recently.
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:
Last year I was invited to create a label for Imagery Estate Winery's prestigious Artist Label Program.
This winery began in the 1980s as a collaboration between a wine maker, Joe Benzinger, and an artist, Bob Nugent. They agreed that as Joe experimented with rare and innovative blends, Bob would create beautiful and interesting labels. Soon, Bob began selecting other artists to participate, and over the past 30 years he curated a collection including artist from all of the world.
The artists are given free range, with the exception that they have to include the Parthenon structure somewhere on the label. Often this becomes a game, connoisseurs in the know searching to locate the hidden building. Read the history here.
Bob Nugent retired recently, and the new curator, Kara Lynae, is now beginning a collection in which my painting will be featured. The winery has a gallery where they display the original works for wine tasters to enjoy at their leisure.
My painting was selected to adorn the 2016 Teroldego, which will be released in summer 2019. Keep an eye out for updates!

Happy International Women's Day, everyone! I appreciate this opportunity to raise my awareness around gender issues, celebrate the wins and to encourage everyone - female, male, binary - to pitch in for a better, more equitable future.
The theme for this year's IWD is #BeBoldforChange, which I just love. My Flawless series is an exploration in portraying bold femininity, something I am continuing to examine in my new work. I'm also trying to educate myself more on these issues.
According to the World Economic Forum, at the current rate the gender gap won't completely close until 2186 (!). That is just too long, so the idea is to take action now to achieve this sooner. Click these links to learn more about the theme and/or choose an action to take. Together we can do better for the next generation.
As an aside, you may have noticed that I have a thing for painting red dresses. I was pretty excited about the call to wear red today, but to my surprise found that I have very little red clothing in my wardrobe (besides scarves)! Perhaps something to remedy...
Regardless, I seem to spot these things everywhere, as in the photo to the right, which I took while wandering around downtown LA's warehouse district a couple weeks ago (I was looking for the historic Woman's Building on N. Spring Street, but that's a story for another time).
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
