Mosaic Monday - Chihuly Arizona

Hello and welcome to Mosaic Monday.  Mary at Little Red House is our host.  Please visit her blog to see a variety of Mosaics from around the globe. 

Last March my husband and I went to Phoenix for Baseball Spring Training.  I am a huge Texas Rangers fanatic.  While we were there we visited the Desert Botanical Garden.  Much to my surprise they were exhibiting Dale Chihuly's glass all throughout the gardens. These are mosaics I created from the pictures I took in the garden.




These pictures don't do his work justice.  It is breath taking in a garden setting. 

Below are 2 kaleidoscopes I created using the picture in the first mosaic top left corner.

















Thank you for visiting my blog. 
Until next time,

How interesting. I need to put this on my list of places to visit in Phoenix. The Atlanta Botanical Garden has alot of this mixed media too. It sure makes it visually stimulating.
