Located in beautiful Malibu California, the Getty Villa offers stunning views...
"Summer is a great time to visit art museums, which offer the refreshing rinse of swimming pools--only instead of cool water, you immerse yourself in art."
~ Jerry Saltz ~
and classical Greco-Roman art.

Maybe it was the olive trees, which reminded me of a beautiful home my parents used to live in...

"In character, in manner, in style, in all things,
the supreme elegance is simplicity."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
whatever the source of the magic, the Getty Villa took my love of art to new heights.
