The Falcon by Dan Johnson

The Falcon

Click here to bid on this painting.

I visited the city of Leiden in the Netherlands in the autumn of 2013, and on arriving, I looked out of my hotel room window, and the first thing I saw was this tall windmill poking out above the trees.

It didn’t look too far, so I went for a walk to take a closer look.

The mill is called “De Valk” (the Falcon) – hence the painting name – and it dates back to 1743.

I know it’s kind of cliche to go to Holland and paint windmills, but how could I resist?

Happy bidding!
