“West­ern sun­sets, light and color have been my in­spi­ra­tion since I was a child rid­ing my horse by Ril­lito River [near Tuc­son, Ari­zona]. For 47 years now I have painted mostly plein air and I am al­ways spir­i­tu­ally re­newed, out­side, en­gaged with what I love,” says Risa Waldt. The artist, who works pri­mar­ily in oils and wa­ter­col­ors, says the Grand Canyon and Se­dona are among some of her fa­vorites lo­cales to paint. Art­work by Waldt will be on view at Art on the Llano Es­ta­cado at the Mu­seum of Texas Tech Univer­sity from April 23 to 26. Waldt is a Women Artists of the West Sig­na­ture Mem­ber; a Saguaro Fel­low in the South­ern Ari­zona Water­color Guild in Tuc­son, Ari­zona; and win­ner of the Al­bert Nel­son Mar­quis Life­time Achieve­ment Award.
