Portfolio > PADS 3: Like a Tree Planted by Water

“He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”
- Psalm 1

This mural focuses on the theme of personal development and positive growth. The central image -- of a mother and father standing in an open field, with the boy’s arms outstretched -- mirrors the tree’s branches stretching out and growing strong. The other images foster further relationships between child development and nature. The growth of a seed to a fruit is much like the growth of a child to an adult. The arrows are in the shape of a scripture, referencing the biblical source of the quotation, and suggest further growth and new life
off the edge of the mural.
