In a busy plaza in Nice, I photographed a crowd lingering near a fountain.  The intimate embrace of this one couple stood out from all the rest.  It posed so many questions - is the relationship blooming or fading? Are they equally satisfied?

At another point on our trip we visited St Paul Mausole psychiatric hospital in St. Remy de Provence, where Vincent Van Gogh was hospitalized after his ear incident in Arles. This is where he created some of his most iconic paintings, including The Starry Night. The experience moved me to create these two plein air works of the scenes Vincent once knew.
