A few years ago, when we were still using films in camera, I came across a couple of rolls in our guest room while rearranging the furniture. Upon developing them, I realized they had been inadvertently forgotten and left behind by a guest who was visiting us on his way back from Europe. This painting is the result of my impression of the old buildings that I came across in photograph after photograph. I didn't know anything about the places in the pictures and 'Silent Enigma' (watercolor, 11x12") is what stayed in my imagination after I mailed off the pictures. Eventually I had to paint the haunting image that remained behind with me.
