Red is Jasper's trademark. Not the first to paint on a colored ground, Jasper's choice of ground color is unexpected. Each of her paintings begins on a canvas totally covered in vibrant red. In the end, the underlying red, still visible in bits, permeates the canvas.

The red ground's presence, while more obvious at close range, produces interactive visual effects when viewed from a greater distance.
