Getty Fire Pull

Today was a travel day. It was about seven hours of driving. Nice though. We took ‘the 101’ up the coast from Los Angeles. It sure beats ‘the 5’, which is an inland route. Lots of farmland, but not the same as the view of the ocean.

Sidra, our 10 year old granddaughter, didn’t want us to go. Will, being 18 months old, wasn’t aware we were going away. When he wakes up tomorrow, he will probably not notice any difference from the day before.  We’ll see if he shows any recognition when we FaceTime. I’ll keep you posted.


I didn’t have time to experiment with watercolors today, but I did want to share with you, a picture from yesterday.  Those of you who have been following me for some time, know that I have a bit of a fixation with local fire suppression equipment. (See Fire Plugs, Standpipe Portrait, What Luck!, Concentration, Post Birthday Post, and, in Burbank: On the Road Again and Fire Plugs.)

The photo below is from the Getty Museum. No, it’s not an exhibit. Below is one of many fire pulls I found all around the museum. What is the most dangerous of hazards facing priceless works of art?  Fire, I  would venture to say. Probably followed by water damage.

I like that this one has my name on it.
