This mill has always interested me and has been a challenge to paint over the years. It's located on a sharp and dangerous corner with no good road shoulders to paint from so I worked from one of my own photo's. In fact I'm sure the mill is old enough to have been here before the road was paved, which today seems to be a launching ramp to cars to crash into the mill. I do like the view of the mill sinking below the road and even the curve with warning signs.
