Dream Dictionary Meaning For Painting


When you dream of painting, consider the context. Who is doing the painting and what is being painted are all clues as to the specific meaning. Very broadly speaking, to dream of painting points to change or a need for a change. Consider also your feeling about the color of the paint in the dream. If something is being painted a color that you consider to be ugly, this can mean that you are offended or troubled by criticism or negativity given off by someone or something in your waking life. Conversely, if you like the color that is being used this can indicate that you are or soon will be very pleased about some changes that are already in the process of happening around you.

To dream that paint has gotten on your clothes can point to a deep desire to be more careful and methodical in your daily life and also that you may feel that you are clumsy. You may be best served by understanding your limitations and honoring yourself despite them. This does not mean that you don't try to improve; it simply means not to waste time and energy longing to be a prima ballerina or star sprinter if you are challenged to walk without bumping into things.

If dreaming of a framed painting in your dream, this indicates beauty and a rich inner life, but again, the context is important. How did you feel about the painting? What was it a painting of? To dream of artwork that you find ugly or objectionable can mean that there is something in your life that you are trying to pretend is acceptable but which is really not all right with you. To dream of a gorgeous or highly valuable painting can mean that your creative side needs more nurturance and/or feeding; and that your environment can need some care and attention.

Any environment can be made to be more aesthetically pleasing; this does not need to cost money, and dreams about painting and artwork can point to a deep need to pay attention to such matters.
