A stream to the lake

Last year, on a trip to Michigan, I stopped and did a little exploring of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. A part of the National Park system, it's a beautiful stretch of beaches and dunes. I found this stream and started a small painting, but I struggled and gave up since I had a destination to get to. I just finished this studio version from photos.

So glad you came back to this... really wonderful. And I love seeing Lake Michigan, I grew up swimming on the Wisconsin side and have such great memories! You got it.
