Published 9:00 am Sunday, March 6, 2016
Theodore Rasmussen of Austin is the featured artist at City Hall this month. Theodore is a disabled veteran and started painting as therapy in 1989 while serving in the U.S. Army.
Most of Rasmussen’s work is abstract. He said he gets his inspiration from the great masters, including Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. He worked predominately in oil paintings and loves anything and everything from the 1960s.
Rasmussen will show at the Austin Artworks Center later this year and has paintings for sale there as well.
