Heike's Windmill

Inspiration:  I was telling a friend of mine how I started a post card collection and would ask anyone traveling to send me a post card from their trip.  I would use the post cards to teach Jenny about places by going online and showing her things.  One of her favorites was a windmill which we were able to watch as it moved.  So, my friend sent me photos of the windmill from her hometown in Germany.  I painted this for her.

Scene:  Bremen Windmill,4.10,70.0.  The child in the painting is my friend when she was young.  Her little puppy dog follows her.

 Poem:  "Moved by the Spirit" is from my Faith Journey Series:  This poem explores the mystery of faith which is as intangible and unpredictable as the wind, yet just as powerful.  The faithful believe in and follow what they cannot see but only feel.
