the last windmill


one hour to go,the light is fading,
looking for one last windmill...
we got lucky,found two!
20 minutes to paint,what a rush.
packing up in the dark,not knowing the result.
a glorious end to my dutch painting adventure,
with my friend rene...oil on panel 8x8"

Rob, your Holland paintings are wonderful and it looks like you had such a great time with René.

Some time ago William Wray pointed Edward Seago out to me. I bought me the book and love his work.

hi stefan,
yes seago is something else,
you can see his influence very much in edward wesson and to an extend also trevor chamberlaine.
thanks!
