Windmills are truly among my most cherished buildings, this one is lovely, especially that it seems a bit off the beaten path among a field of tulips.
Greetings,

Mill house is gorgeous! Very nice, val...I really like this. A ton of hand work on those mill blades...
I really love the little houses and trees in the distance...the grass with the flowers...the base of the tower...aw hec, as I sit and gaze and admire...I like every little bit of this painting.

Even the shade of blue for the mountains in the far background...you captured that exact shade of blue that you see in real life when you look at the mountains...
