Kuldigas , Latvia
9.5" x 13"   oil on board

The Virtual Paintout went to Latvia this month, so I rode up and down the highway looking for something interesting to paint. There was a lot of great scenery, Latvia is a picturesqe place. But this is what stopped me short... What was going on here? Was this an abandoned house or barn? A church? Why is this building in ruins when all the homes and farms around it seem to be prospering? You can see for yourself by clicking here... I was intrigued by this scene because it asked more questions than it answered. There's a story here, a mystery - I am curious to know what it is.
