Our family member Arthur de Leeuw lives in Oss, the Netherlands and has become an avid artist since he retired and would like to share some of his paintings with Windmill readers. My Mother’s - Mother (Grandma Elsen) was Margareta de Leeuw and married to Nicholas Elsen. Arthur’s Grandfather is a brother to my Grandmother Margareta.   We can now say we are related to that famous Dutch painter named Arthur de Leeuw.                                                                                                               The photo (below left) taken in April 2005 is of Arthur and his wife Janny.  (Lower left is of Arthur & Janny..Char, the most famous medium in the USA..their daughter Claudia and son-in-law Kenneth.                                                                                            The paintings shown here are small so be sure to click on each one for a larger view.
