Windmill Holland

Note the six-sided shape of this hand-built windmill on the canals near Amsterdam. There were no building codes, so you built it however you could and to whatever plan you might happen to have. Blueprints? What are blueprints? Homes were more or less piled together " you did all the work yourself, just as you made your own homespun cloth, butter and shoes or sandals. Everything was homemade, and you swapped or traded the things you made for the things you needed. A Miller specialized in grinding grain, and took animals, food and other provisions in trade for the service, as well as Guilders " cold cash.

GRAPHITE LITHOGRAPHIC STYLE MINIATURE LANDSCAPES ó $25 each. Yes, that is the wholesale price, no discount for quantity, because thereís a lot of cost behind each print, and we donít control the printing costs, the printers do. The originals were created in graphite on Heavyweight 300 gram Arches Rives BFK etching paper, and were massaged into prints by Marvette, who matched the prints with the originals. In a frame, you canít tell the difference between the print and the original. My original graphite works are no longer for sale, prints only.
