Finally, here are photos of my first wall mural project, Gothic Dreamcatchers:
I will never underestimate the work and time required for a mural ever again. I thought it was going to take me 8-10 hours on the whole thing, but I ended up working on it for 19 hours—divided into 3 days.
It was definitely the measuring and sketching that took so long; I had to base my measurements on the walls and floor, but they weren’t straight! It was quite challenging, and therefore I am extremely grateful for the drawing skills I learned in PSID!
Despite of the many hours it consumed, in fact, it was fun to work on itl! And who would’ve thought that one could learn valuable lessons while working on a mural?
2 Valuable Lessons I Learned while Working on Gothic Dreamcatchers
- In life, you have to focus on one thing at a time. You may get overwhelmed by all the tasks you know that need get done, but to tackle the challenge appropriately, you have to focus on one task, and one task only. And with that one task, do your best and give it your all.
Whatever it is you are working on at the present, is presented to you by life. How are you gonna deal with it?
- You will definitely make mistakes in life. But it is up to you to leave it as a mistake and just apologize for it, or to do something about it and work around the problem, and come up with a solution to it.
Who knows, it might even give you a better result! It certainly did for me! 😉
