Wednesday Photographs: Amazing art, glass… CHIHULY!!!

Once again it’s Wednesday photos on Thursday (!!) …but you’re in for a treat. For real – amazing art of an entirely unique class in glass.  Like you can’t believe the beauty & creativity (off the charts ‘wow factor’  :  )

A few weeks ago my brother & i zoomed up to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond to see the special Chihuly exhibit.  We had plotted this outing for awhile (& i must confess to Very High Expectations after viewing the videos of Dale Chihuly’s center in Seattle etc.) … but the actual exhibit far exceeded anything i imagined.

INCREDIBLE.

So enjoy these pics,  courtesy of Dwight Woodward (& his handy iPhone : )
