Jennifer Rasmusson embraces color to showcase this season’s natural palette.
“I’ve always loved color, so the biggest mark of my work is the color,” says artist and Cedar City resident Jennifer Rasmusson. Her work, which vacillates between oils and mixed media, often incorporates an array of brilliant hues. Because of her love for natural coloration, she’s particularly inspired by springtime. “Coming up from all the grays of winter and seeing all the pops of color, that’s what I love. The little bit of green that comes out, the blues. Everything is crisp and sharper in the spring,” says Rasmusson. And this was definitely the case in Nightsong: “The pansies came right from the nursery, and I decided I wanted to paint them immediately. I liked the idea of these flowers looking around and seeing where their new home was going
