Interpretation of dream: Painting

To dream that you are painting your house, signifies that you will find much success in a new project or that you will be promoted to a coveted position. You may be expressing your creativity. Alternatively, it may indicate that you are covering up something. If someone else is painting your house, then it suggests that someone close to you is hiding something from you. Consider the color of the paint to determine any additional significance. For example, red colored paint may imply painting the town red and releasing your pent up excitement. To dream that paint has gotten on your clothes, signifies that you are too easily offended by criticism about you. To see a painting in your dream, represents your need for self-expression. The painting is symbolic of your intuition and inner realizations.
