This painting is a prime example of Zalameda’s developing interest in the elemental. Although always tender in observation and mood, Zalameda’s abstract works avoid false sentimentality. Zalameda’s charming and airy gestural abstraction is a happy collision of hazes, even haphazard patterns of broken, contrasting neutral colors.

The brushstrokes, though too broad to be strictly speaking descriptive, provide visual equivalents of natural objects and the feel of weather effects that make an impact on the spectator just as they had been executed with immediacy.
