Artist's Description

Featured in Music Inspired Art

Acrylic on 5×7 canvas board – Inspired by the song “The Dreaming Tree” by Dave Matthews Band (The original is SOLD – this is the first original painting that I have EVER sold!)

This one started with my playlist on shuffle. I was listening to ‘Desert Flower’ by Kan’Nal when I saw this green swirling vortex in my head. That was the first thing to be placed on the canvas. I had just learned, from a friend, how much fun watered down paint and straws could be! So, I dripped on some darker green, blew through a straw, and voila!! That’s when I realized that this piece would be some kind of tree. Everything else came very easily after that. The title for this piece came just as I was finishing the little pink flowers. One of my favorite Dave Matthews Band songs titled, ‘The Dreaming Tree’, started to play. The first verse is as follows:

“Standing here
The old man said to me
Long before these crowded streets
Here stood my dreaming tree
Below it he would sit
For hours at a time
Now progress takes away
What forever took to find
Now he’s falling hard
He feels the falling dark
How he longs to be
Beneath his dreaming tree”…..

It was too fitting not to use that title!
