Tree Mural with Soft Dreamlike Design

I love to paint tree murals. From a decorating perspective, they serve as great anchors for a room because they introduce a strong unifying element. They can transform a bare corner and are a nice way to add color and life to a space (whether that be a family room or a bedroom). But they also add a lot of “psychic” nourishment. Trees are living models of being anchors. They are rooted, full of beauty and race. Each one is unique and has it’s own character. I have been working on a lot of tree paintings lately and have received lots of inquiries for trees on my website. If it is a trend, I think it is a good one.

Here is a “dream tree” that I painted in my own dining room. I painted the wall first with a magnetic primer so that I can easily collage images and text over the top with the help of magnets instead of more permanent adhesive. The idea is to create a “family dream collage” where everyone contributes to mapping out our dreams for our life.
