Day in a Villa...

Spend a day at the Getty Villa in Malibu...

My painting was inpsired by this photo below taken by Barbara Jacksier on her recent visit to the Getty Villa... the rest of the photos in this post are via the Getty Villa site.
Explore the gardens and architecture...

Enjoy the exhibits...
and the permanent collection...
Dine at the Cafe and lust after the incredible views...

I have been looking for the right photo from the Getty Villa for an invitation for a non-profit organization to benefit the Braille Institute of America in March 2009 that will be held partially at the Getty Villa... and thanks to Barbara's photo and her permission... I was able to save gas... and render art work easily. I have not been to the Getty Villa since I was in art school... and since then renovations have been completed. I look forward to attending the benefit event next year to see it all in person!

Have you been to the Getty Villa since it has been renovated? Are you involved in non-profit organizations? Important to give back to your community.

And while I'm on the subject of Villas and Giving... This painting "Villa Cassandra" I recently completed for Cassandra of Coco + Kelly from a photo she submitted to me... she was the winner of the Carnival Giveaway via the Bloggy Giveaway site...

Enjoy your Day!
