Here it is, the Tree of Life mural....finished!!! (I posted a bit about the symbolism of the Tree of Life here awhile back.) I had so much fun painting this one! I loved the freedom of working in this style and within this color range. Clients sometimes think that it is better to give me no direction at all for their projects and that they should just "trust the artist". While I do appreciate that so much that they trust me, it actually helps me be more creative when I am working within some sort of confines. Give me some ideas for subject matter, show me some images of art you like, show me the decor and color scheme of your home.....then turn it over to me! Too many restrictions however, can be limiting. It's a balance, and this project struck a perfect one.
The last picture in this post is one that I photoshopped. This is what the mural owner is planning on doing with this! I designed the trees branches to have space between them for family photos of all shapes and sizes. I can't wait to see this mural when it's actually a completed family photo wall, not just photoshopped by an impatient me :)
Hope you enjoy!
