My husband is a big cyclist, so we went to the south of France to see a stage of the Tour de France. In return, I got to go to a lot of farmers' markets. At a market in Aix en Provence, we took off in different directions to look for painting subjects (he knows what I like). I came upon this pair deep in conversation and started snapping away, from a good distance. They were completely unaware. I was completely unaware that Peter was also taking pictures of them! It seemed like it was meant to be. This painting is 10 years old and I would do some things about it differently today, but it's always been a favorite and it won a couple of nice awards, back in the day.
