I love having people over to see my theater, and the cherry on top… my night sky mural that I painted myself. Nobody can believe that I painted it.And, after a few minutes of total darkness, people say things like: “Gosh, there are thousands of stars!” “They’re twinkling…how can they be twinkling?” The tone of the commentary suggests my friends were really enjoying the illusion and could barely believe what they were seeing.
Well, why shouldn’t others react in that way…truth is, I reacted the same way on first seeing the finished mural. Even beyond the initial exposure, though, the night sky simulation continues to be cool and fun. The sensory illusion of a canopy of stars above you is captivating each time you renew the experience.
