Tuesday tidbits - wind-ground

in which our plucky heroine delights in variation...

Often when I know that friends are traveling to far-off lands, that I will never see in this bright world, I have asked them to "bring me back a pebble from your path". Instead of a pebble, my sister brought me home finely ground rocks!
My mailbox held a surprise gift from my Best Little Sister... two different colors of windmill-ground pigments (yellow ochre and grey slate) from her visit to the Netherlands. The mill, Verfmolen "De Kat", has been in operation since 1782. I plan on using these to try out doing egg tempera painting, which uses egg yolk as a binder/medium for turning pigment powder into paint...
