Rules were made to be broken, so I'm breaking my own rule. From the start it's been about MY flowers, MY garden, MY photos. Then this work of art arrived as a gift. How to say no to a vanda sent by an artist?
Marielle Deluna has a vision of her world that defies all preconceived ideas. Her work is moody, dramatic, spontaneous, exotic. With her camera she captures the dark side of the tropics. The Caribbean sea becomes an inky morass, the palm trees are enveloped in fog. This is not your grandmother's sunny postcard. "Wish you were here" becomes "Enter at your own psychological risk". It's a trip well worth taken and an excellent reason to breach one more silly dictate.
Thanks, Marielle, for helping me take a different road.
