On My First Day

     Of the kids being in school, I created a massive quantity of art. Ha. No, even better I went to enjoy some art with friends. I wasn't planning to like this as I had seen pictures and it just didn't excite me. It has drawn large crowds here since it's opening but I just didn't go earlier.

    But in the early morning sun and the company friends, I was in love with it. Enjoy the beauty of the gardens and the the art of Dale Chihuly at the Meijer Gardens .

One of my favorites-the blending of the pink and the soft yellow...

And enjoying two wonderful friends for a few hours. That was a treat and now I want to go back for more to see it in different light. Why haven't I gone before? The exhibit has been extended until the end of October secondary to the large crowds. I will go again.

 This was truly a privilege.

Happy Art, my friends!


  1. I've never been a Chihuly fan. Then I saw several pieces of his work at the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. His work was stunning placed among the plants.

  2. This is on my list of "to do" after my ArtPrize entry is installed. Maybe next week.

  3. Kim-Stunning is exactly the word.

    Nellie-You can't miss it. I was there right at 9am and by 11 it was getting busy on a Tues! It will be very enjoyable and relaxing for you.
