This is not actually today's pastel, it is from a couple weeks ago. I went to the Netherlands in 2009 and fell in love with the country. It was spring time and we saw the flower fields with daffodils and early tulips. This is a windmill park near Zaandam called Zaans Schans. Much like Williamsburg they have preserved several windmills and old buildings along the river. We climbed up inside one of the windmills that was used to grind chalk for artists. Very fitting!
