Krysteen Waszak is a dedicated plein air painter. Her oils are exuberant, full of vibrant, lively color, energy and a touch of whimsy. A unique process where she builds layers, creates dimension and flow with her design skills, all the while painting quickly and confidently to allow the story of the painting to emerge organically. Krysteen's paintings seem 'alive' and her best effort is to get out of the way of the painting that wants to happen. A life long tight rope to walk she believes. The pieces show off the ever changing beauty and drama of the lands and skies of New Mexico and beyond. Krysteen's work is large for an outdoor painter, pushing herself demands that she reach higher to ensure growth as an artist. If the artist personality comes through the brush, then Krysteen Waszak would be painted free - spirited, fun and full of life.
