Sneak Peek Friday

Looks like I'm giving blood or something
For this Sneak Peek Friday, we'll be taking a detour away from my studio to visit the Getty Museum in downtown LA.  Anyway, that's what I did today.  Can you believe I've been in California 23 years and have never been to the Getty Museum.  I'm ashamed to admit it.


I think when you have a family, trips like Disneyland and Universals tend to rule over a trip to the museum.  So I just put visiting the Getty on the back burner.

Anyway, when my friend, Michelle, said she loved the Getty,  I jump at the chance to have an art lover accompany me.  Part of my "put yourself out there" movement.

Besides all the beautiful paintings, sculptures and artifacts inside, the architecture, views and gardens outside are just as breathtaking. 

As you can see, it was such a beautiful day and experience.  Just amazing right here an hour drive from my home and only the price of a $15/parking fee.  Take that Universals and Disneyland!
