Chihuly at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

We finally made it to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. I’m glad we did.

Dale Chihuly has been working in glass since 1965. His work is now included in more than 200 museum collections worldwide.

Word really aren’t sufficient to describe the experience. The exhibit closes on Sunday, February 10.

I don’t know if something can be too colorful. Color is one of the great properties of glass and is more intense in glass than any other material.

The way I paint or draw, I don’t think about it very much. If I’m thinking about it, that kind of means that I don’t know what to do. If I start thinking, “I want to draw, how what can I draw?” and I’m not inspired – because that can happen very easily – then they start to get mundane. On the other hand, if I start making drawings that I know how to do already and if I can go fast enough, they start to get really good.
