Michigan Dune

Somewhat of a prosaic title, but to me, dunes in Michigan seem a strange idea, although I think Michigan does have the most coastline of any state in the union. The lakes surrounding this state are a gorgeous turquoise blue and trees grow quite close to all of them. We spent some time on a peninsula where cherry orchards and vinyards flowed over gentle hills right down to the sand and water. Absolutely beautiful!

This scene is at a park. I have not painted Lake Superior which is only a few yards from the right edge, but I concentrated on the looming trees that are starting to cast a shadow on the sand dune.
