Following a successful fundraising campaign to renovate Calvary Lutheran Church’s sanctuary, I was approached to paint a vine and grape mural to commemorate the achievement. The entire concept of the mural was based on the Bible verse John 15:5, which states: ‘I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.’
After sketching out the design, I used acrylic paint to complete the painting aspect of the project. I tend to use acrylic paint due to its fast-drying tendency. Once the painting was finished, my next job was to paste ready-made bronzed leaves with the donor’s name on each leaf. Throughout this part, I had to track where each leaf went on the wall since the final step of the project was to design a guide for people to see where their specific leaf was on the mural.
