On December 31, 2012, the Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will close. Last Sunday, I took advantage of an unusually warm day, and schlepped into the city to take in the magic one last time.
I’ve seen the exhibit several times since its opening in May, and I keep coming back one particular piece – Float Boat. I simply love it. Each time I go, I try to capture the glory of it in a different way. I am always amazed by the boldness of the colors and the way they dance across the water. I could spend hours sitting and staring at this work and never see everything there is to be seen.
Of course, my second favorite piece is the water lilies. I love they way the white glass contrasts with its surroundings.
I’m sad to see Chihuly go. It will be missed.
