Piece description from the artist
The Woods in New Hampshire calls to me as we hike through the back forest. The Sun warming my back the cold frost vapors rise in the sun light. The wind freezing my brow and the row of birches comes into view. The light shines on the white paper bark and the shadows fall sharply into the row of birches and the fallen snow. The blue light glistens against the snow and the paper bark. The snow and the quietness of the night call to me the poem by Robert frost. This original painting comes doubled matted and framed in a beautiful silver frame. The outside measures 21 × 36 Winter Blue Birch is a watercolor of the deep New England Birch forest.

With a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University and a M.F.A. from Cornell University, Tamara mainly produces Color Field and Abstract Expressionist works. But when Tamara's son left for college and the house became quiet, she began experimenting with watercolors. She was surprised to find that she absolutely loved it. Watercolors are a huge change for Tamara, as she had never painted anything close to realism before, but she is enjoying this new dimension.
Tamara and her family live in Massachusetts, a short drive away from Lake Winnipesaukee, the White Mountains, the cape, and Maine. However, her standalone favorite place to paint is the American west. She loves to paint from photos she's taken at the National Parks she's visited. Her favorite part about painting realist works is seeing people's face light up when they recognize the locations in her paintings.
The next new adventure for Tamara will be returning to abstract work, but this time around experimenting with small scale and encaustic works.
