Today’s art was created using the following two photos: Calista Jo rolling around on the kitchen rug and a photo Dad Tom took a few years ago of a glass ceiling at a Chihuly* exhibit in Montreal.

OH! How beautiful! Both Calista Jo AND the Chihuly glass. Chihuly is one of our Mom and Dad’s faves … they will be going to the Chihuly exhibit that’s running at the New York Botanical Garden in a few weeks. 🙂

We saw a LOT of Chihuly when he did a major exhibition indoors/outdoors at Kew Gardens. It was a vision and you would have LOVED it!

Oh that glass is incredibly beautiful…….I’ve always had a major soft spot in my heart for art glass – thought at one time about being a stained glass artist – designing windows, etc. Anyway, LOVE the photo and effects – purrrrrfect! See you for the Hop tomorrow!

Love, Pam and the Boys
