‘Sleepy Little Dreams’ at ArtWalk
Deona Fish’s “Sleepy Little Dreams” are paintings that open a
doorway into a nostalgic world, where whim and simplicity guide viewers into feelings and memories
still lingering from childhood.
They’re now available at ArtWalk in downtown Boone.
According Fish’s bio, “Her characters are expressions of the innocence inherent in all beings, the common thread we share with all life. It is wonderfully obvious that her source of inspiration was the preschool and kindergarten children she taught, along with her 3-year-old son.
“Her paintings embody their innate sense of creativity but with a calm tone and muted color cultivated by her time with nature and in her little cabin on the side of a hill in Leicester, N.C.”
Over the past four years, Fish has been traveling the Southeast, attending outsider and folk art festivals. She said the exposure to such amazing artists and kind people has spurred a growth in her work.
