Beach dunes

Plum island dunes #2, 10X10 in, Oil/linen panel

I visited Plum island in the fall this year. I am in love with its landscape and vegetation. Plum Island is named after the beach Plum trees that are found here. In November, the area is so peaceful and quiet. The only sounds you hear are the splashing waves and the calls of native birds.
I wanted to immerse the viewer in the landscape of Plum Island.

Design notes
 This landscape is inspired by the paintings by Frank Dudley. He painted many landscapes, the dunes, the trees and shrubs of Indiana Dunes. The colors he used were dreamy yet earthy.
