I did this painting last week near the beach on Platte Bay on the northwest Michigan shore. I've painted along here before, just a little north at Esch Beach. From there looking north you just see the Empire Bluffs (the dune on the right), but I was happy to find this location farther south which has the more distant Sleeping Bear Dunes as well. It was almost a two-mile, winding, dirt road drive through the woods to get here. Worth it, I'll be back.
