Getting away to a colorful place on an average day is easy thanks to Buckheadbased artist Laura Deems and this mixed media on paper piece that is sunshine in any room. Deems’ 30-by-22-inch work is inspired by the way flowers rustle in the wind, the movement and sounds of streams, the touch of sunlight and the sound of being on a farm. “I’ve harnessed a love of these outdoor moments into a piece that, to me, represents what a secret garden of mine could be—full of color, warmth, emotion,” says the artist.
