I’m taking a trip at the end of the month to the Netherlands. I was doing a little research and came across this article, which included the following,
“A spiritual visit to the countryside. Windmills are worthy objects of artistic attention, as Rembrandt found. (The windmill was said to be his muse.) De Kat, the last remaining wind-powered color mill in the world, produces “antique pigments” from dyewood. ”
I’ve always had a real affinity for windmills. I get to see more of them now then when I was growing up as they line the border between Minnesota (where I live) and South Dakota (where I go to see my mother, sisters, brother-in-laws, and nephews).
