Castle of Fülek, Fiľakovo, Slovakia
9.5" x 13"   oil on board
The Daily Paintworks    $75.

 The Virtual Paintout is a challenge to paint from the Google Street View. We went to Slovakia  this month, and looking for something interesting to paint, and I came upon this old castle up on a hill. Time went crazy while I painted. Day became night, the past became the present, everything got all mixed up! And ghosts, ghosts were everywhere - peasants dwelling in that stone hut up close, war councils in the big tower. Knights on chargers, jousting in the car park below, their horses' hooves thundering on the pavement.
