Oklahoma ✔️

So, what do you do when you are stuck in a small town in Kansas over the weekend? Drive to Oklahoma City! 
It was a 2&1/2 hour straight shot from Newton. Of course I went easy on the coffee before getting in the car. No worries, on this drive there were plenty of truck stops along the way.
This was my first stop for a late breakfast/early lunch.
This was one of the best steaks that I have ever had. It is located in Stockyard City.
I walked a round  a little.
After that I headed over to the Oklahoma Museum of Art.
The current exhibit was of young Chinese artists.
This is a little close up of a large piece that was gorgeous!
This huge piece is a textile piece.
Some close ups...
Pretty incredible.
The museum also has a huge Chihuly collection. When Rich and I were in Seattle we went to the Chihuly Gardens next to the Space Needle and we went to the traveling exhibit in Richmond a couple of years ago so I really didn't think that I would see anything different.
I was wrong.

Such amazing colors and forms.
It was a nice way to spend the afternoon.
There was a little stitching during the week.
My work week was long. I am ready to be home.

Have a great weekend my friends!
As always thanks for traveling with me.

I love Chihuly! DD saw the exhibit in Seattle. I've only seen a few of his pieces in person. Someday I will see more! Looks like a fun day trip! Hope you are home and resting now.

Great visit at the museum. Textile arts are always interesting to see and whenever I have the chance to visit such an exhibition I do so.
I hope you will have some rest this weekend.
