Inspirational Tree of Life

Tree of Life Wall Mural

Sometimes we need a little inspiration to stay Motivated at Work.

My wonderful client had a clever idea that combined her own personal style with words that inspire… and art.

She loved the color red so had one wall in her office painted red.

Then she called me to paint a mural that would bring her vision to life…

Here is what she wanted:

  • I want to have a black silhouette tree painted on the wall with words incorporated into the branches and roots.
  • I want it to be a “Tree of Life” where the roots, trunk, and branches all have meaning and remind me of core things that are important as I work.
  • She showed me a few images of trees with curling, swirling branches and trees with roots
  • and gave me a list of inspirational quotes that meant something to her.
  • She also liked the idea some tree branches creating the shape of a heart.

Here is the sketch I did on the wall with chalk.

Next, I chalked out her inspirational quotes so they would look like they were part of the tree.

We decided cursive writing would look like part of the art.

I painted the tree silhouette and words with black paint.

Here is a close up of the painted writing on the wall.

Inspirational Writing on Wall

The roots say:

  • “Always do your best”
  • “What you plant now, you will harvest later”

The trunk says:

  • “Love makes everything grow”

The branches say:

  • “Energy and persistence conquer all things”
  • “The best way to predict your future is to create it”
  • “Your attitude determines your direction”
  • “Fly, Run, Walk, Crawl – Whatever you do keep moving forward”

Here is the finished inspirational tree wall mural.

I have painted a lot of tree murals over the years.
And every client has different things that are important to them in their tree painting.
