Pastel and Art in Malibu and Beyond

Recently: Spring Break trip out to the Golden State to camp with friends and family at Leo Carillo State beach. A tad bit of wind on the water makes for great sea spray effects.

Our awesome daytime at the beach “rock” interpretations:

At night, we have the Equinox moonlight on. Wow!

And can’t forget the Malibu Seafood shack for fortification of fresh clams, etc. (Yes, I am related to the featured child…he’s a good sport posing for his Auntie M.)

A trip to L.A. is not complete without museum going…The art scene is diverse.

After the beach we head up the Pacific Coast Highway to the Getty Villa, a must-see for ancient art and history lovers.

Next: Bergamot Station on Michigan Avenue, with local and international contemporary art. Neon is big here.

Armand Hammer museum is currently showing a wonderfully comprehensive collection from The Black Mountain College.

R. Buckminster Fullers sketch for a geodesic dome and student work from Joseph Albers’ color theory lessons.

Hammer selections from the permanent collection include a sweet pastel by Odilon Redon. Love that blue!

Fun entry stairway murals by L.A. painter  Kenny Scharf.

And finally a wrap up with easter egg dying. Such are the simple pleasures of children…and grown up artists.

Adios L.A. see you again sometime….soon.
