This is one of the few remaining dune shacks in Cape Cod National Seashore. Over the years many famous artists and writers have used the beautiful isolation the shacks provide to create their work.

I'm in Minnesota for part of the winter season. This image struck me (photograph by Kate Freeman), beauty can be found on a grey November day. This piece is 9x11.5 on Wallis paper using soft pastels and vine charcoal.
