After recently finishing my last nursery mural, I sat down and thought about all of the one's that I have done before it. Apparently I get asked to do a lot of tree murals. Don't get me wrong, I like doing them. I think that I'm pretty good at painting trees.
If you google "nursery tree mural" literally thousands of murals will come up. And they are all so very different from each other. Why is it that when you are about to have a baby do you suddenly want to have someone come in and paint a tree in your house. I think that they represent life, growth, vitality and strength. All things that you want to incorporate into the very first room your baby will live in. Maybe we want to return to nature, but since we cannot really sit outside so much here in Dallas we choose to bring the outdoors in.
I want to paint a really gnarly tree in my office/studio. So at least I'm not sick of them yet. I promise to post pictures.
