“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.
