Palm Tree Symbolism in Custom Oil Painting

Custom Oil Paintings Have Become More Accessible, Often Given As Gifts

Hail, friends, maybe you wish to commission a custom oil painting — or maybe you are a painting artist, who will be commissioned to do original paintings. Custom oil portraits make excellent gifts for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, anniversary gifts, and other gift ideas.

Thousands Are Changing Their Approach To Art Composition

I write this for you, in the hope that I recruit you. Whereto shall I recruit you? — to the responsible use of unconscious symbolism. I would like to hearten you to use unconscious symbols responsibly.

For instance, once you know the meanings of some positive symbols, you can add them to the composition of birthday, or other, paintings, even if they are to be made from a photo.

I am “all about” choosing positive symbols in art works, and rejecting negative ones, for general purposes.

The Jungian Mandala Is The Highest Of All Art Symbols

Insofar as I have been able to find, the Jungian mandala is the highest of all symbols. For that, every art painting ought to be a mandala – or ought to be part of a furniture-arrangement, that forms a Jungian mandala.

Right now, it is too soon in the “mandala art campaign”, for me to try to persuade you, to make your every oil painting to be a Jungian mandala. Therefore, I hope to hook you into the subject, by telling to you, about the symbolism, of the palm tree, and how you can use it, in your custom oil painting composition.

Some Art Symbols Are Generally Harmful, But Each Has Its Right Time And Place

Did you notice that I used the disclaimer, in the foregoing sentence, “for general purposes”? That is because a symbol, that might be negative, in general, may have a limited, positive use, when featured in art drawings, or in art paintings.

What Quoth The Raven To Our Unconscious?

For example, ravens and crows are not symbols, that speak the best of outcomes, to our unconscious, when we see them displayed, in fine art paintings.

Yet, as part of a process, there may be a temporary place for ravens, in oil painting art, to help in psychotherapy, or in self-understanding.

If we happen to be in a phase of the psychotherapeutic process, where we are working with “the shadow”, then an image of a raven might call forth the shadow, so that we might explore its contents, purposefully. However, we would not want to do so all the time, therefore, as a piece, of permanent wall art, the raven is a “no-no”.

Sometimes We May Want To Explore “The Shadow”

In case you don’t know the meaning, of the psychological element, known as “the shadow”, and in case you wish, to find out more thereabout, then you will get fulfillment, if you Google “jung shadow”.

It might be helpful, to display a custom oil painting, of a raven, for a limited time, during the invocation, or the exploration, process, when we invoke, and when we explore, the shadow.

However, you would not want to include ravens in compositions of oil portraits that are to be given as presents, if you truly care about the one, to whom you are giving the gift-portrait.

Small Ravens In Larger Fine Art Painting Themes

A raven might be appropriate as a small element in a larger, detailed work of art, that maps out the entire process of self-fulfillment or self-actualization. “‘Nuff said”, as the “feller” once said.
