Trees in the Bedroom
Inspired by Terri Windling's amazing trees she painted in her little cozy British cottage, I've had plans to paint similar ghosted tree images on the wall of our bedroom. This weekend I set to work. So far I have painted three trees...they are more time-consuming than I expected! (Each tree took about an hour and a half to two hours to paint)
I'm currently debating whether or not I want to add more to our bedroom grove.
The corner in the daylight as of Saturday late afternoon.
The view from the open doorway to our upstairs bedroom. Today's addition...a larger tree in the corner by our bedroom door.
The current view from our bed:
I have a wrought iron wall chandelier I'm thinking of putting on the wall between the two trees (it would have to go over some of the branches) and eventually we want to get some sort of chair for the corner.
Probably I'd put it on the wall without the medallion and chains...just the line of candles. Good idea? Other thoughts?
