Celebrating the transition of summer into fall, featuring a white fox in a field of golden and rust colored chrysanthemums. This painting is part of a series of whimsical foxes. For these pieces, Tara has a collection of small toy foxes that she sets up like a still life for reference. "I think of foxes as mystical creatures, leading the viewer to an otherworldly destination," says Tara. The magenta underpainting wraps around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas.

Getting to Know Tara

Tara Zalewsky-Nease draws on the soul of the desert to create her impressionist landscape paintings. While earning her Masters in Fine Art Painting at the University of New Mexico, she experienced the magical energy of the expansive panoramas and the timeless geography of the southwest. She hiked, journaled and captured reference photography during her time there, as well as during her trips to the Pacific Northwest, France and Japan. Two common motifs in her works are hummingbirds, which are totems of good luck, and foxes, which allude to her young son. Tara has had solo exhibitions in Sante Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. She currently lives in Sewickley, PA where she shares a studio with her mother, who is also a painter and fiber artist. When she is not creating art, she teaches art classes at several universities and also enjoys playing the piano, spending time with her pets and family and acting in several community productions.
