A plein air painting of the Sint-Janshuis Mill in Bruges. Windmills have graced Bruges’ ramparts ever since the construction of the outer city wall at the end of the 13th century. Built in 1770 and still occupying its original site, it is the only mill still grinding flour and the only mill open to visitors. It was fascinating to go up in the windmill and see the inner workings; architecturally simply and beautiful.


This painting may be seen at Nepenthe Gallery, Alexandria, VA.
