Caroline Jasper has new work just in time for the holidays. I learned a lot from her time here with us at Creative Catalyst Productions and even more while I edited her video, "Color Moves: Painting Water with Oil." Her DVD was the first one that introduced me to colored grounds. Caroline will start her oil paintings on a bright red or bright orange gessoed background. She then builds her color from there. You can see traces of the original background in the luminescent lines around trees or edges of boats in water. I really love her work.
