I take trips to the extraordinary Vallarta Jardín Botánico often. It is a favorite place to stimulate my creativity. I am not alone. USA Today named it one of its Readers’ Choice “10 Best” Gardens in North America. I visit seasonally for inspiration and to have lunch in the wonderful restaurant.
The Cacti Pavillion is stunning. I love backlight. I love the way it defines a shape and creates a glow. In this artwork light both reveals and conceals the plants behind the cactus, simultaneously abstract and realistic.
