One In A Mill-ion -The Old Mill

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my interpretation of the photo to the DPW Old Mill Challenge.
The challenge was issued by artist Jean Nelson , who wrote:
"Often we encounter a scene when either en plein air painting, or from a photo that has potential to be a nice painting. But it needs to be cleaned up a bit, maybe a seasonal change, information deleted or added, cropping, etc.. This photo is just that kind of challenge. It has potential, but needs the imagination of the artist to make it an interesting painting."

2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
