Inspiration: Flora and Structure at the Getty Villa

[villa2.jpg]

As I'm transferring all my data from my old computer to my new one and learning about all the useful upgrades that I've been missing out on in iPhoto, I came across these photos that I took on a visit to the Getty Villa in Malibu last summer. Perhaps it's my new screen that seems to make everything look rich and vibrant that's drawing me to these images, but I thought I'd share some visual inspiration with you.

A visit to the Getty Villa can put a creative mind in a frenzy because everything is visually stimulating geometrically and organically. In a walkway each window portal is covered with a pattern; three patterns repeat every third window. In a reflecting pool nearby, lily pads of various BRILLIANT colors and shapes overlap each other, forming an inconsistent pattern. Hopefully these photos will help tell this story.

Enjoy!
