This is the first in my American Tune series. 

The embers of our fight and passion seem to dim, and hope seems to hibernate.  
We wait and watch and yearn for a glimmer of Spring, a sign of warmth, a turning.  
We settle into the shadows of the woods we walk.
We feel the gloaming.  It has overtaken us, and may never leave.
Yet, the reds and oranges at our feet catch our eye like fire.
A fire that burned bright before, and will burn again soon.

Getting to Know Tamara

Inspired by the long lingering sunsets of humid mid-atlantic summers and the soft greens of New Hampshire and Vermont, Tamara Gonda’s artwork is uniquely American abstraction. With an MFA from Cornell University and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Tamara produces vibrant Color Field and Abstract Expressionist works. Her art reflects an appreciation of the many different American places she has experienced, as reinterpreted experiences for the viewer.
