remembering, acrylic, mixed media
i joined a friend at the getty museum
to celebrate her birthday.
los angeles scape, getty succulent garden
i was thrilled that she choose the getty as it is one of my
absolute favorite spots in los angeles. with each visit
i feel as if i had been to a wondrous destination.
there is a feast for the eyes from any angle.
i apologize... i thought i took more architectural
photos to post but when i came home i realized that
i only had a few. hopefully you get a chance to treat yourself
when you are in los angeles.
manet's painting, spring, was a recent
acquisition on display in all of its
in the same room was van gogh's
iris, which i never tire of seeing.
degas' russian dancers and the art of pastel was
yet another exhibit to view. this painting in particular
took my breath away as i entered the room. the light
degas caught in her skirt was indescribably beautiful.
it almost shimmered.
andrea del sarto: the renaissance workshop inaction displayed the artist
renderings and studies along with the finished paintings.
i was particularly taken with his use of red chalk which i had never heard of.
and finally animal, photos by various artists.
i love this sweet owl by the american photographer
i hope you enjoyed this mini tour of the getty museum.
thank you kristin and eva for continuing
to host paint party friday.
street heart nestled in dried leaves
