Radiant landscape painting representing an old water mill in a peaceful, natural setting. Despite its tranquil appearance, this image appears to be alive with movement, first from the mill wheel churning water on the still stream, but one can almost hear the breeze through the trees and see the clouds slowly floating by. This image very much appeals to the senses.
