|Dunes and Porter Creek, oil on linen, 24x24, $2300.|
"Dunes and Porter Creek" was inspired by my favorite beach in the Nordhouse Dunes area in the Manistee National Forest. Porter Creek is a small stream emptying into Lake Michigan. The dunes surrounding the creek and along the shoreline have changed dramatically over the many years that I have been camping there. A few years ago a fierce wind storm changed the dune landscape. Sadly many trees and branches littered the dunes. The worst part was the trash washed up onto the shore. Many kind folks spent their vacation hours cleaning up the beaches. To this day, trash continues to litter these pristine areas after storms and currents carry the trash to our beaches. I am hoping that in some small way, we can all do our part to eliminate littering and to be more conscience of keeping our earth beautiful for all future generations.
