This was painted plein air at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area & Horsfall Beach just North of Coos Bay/North Bend.  This 40 mile expanse of sand dunes, formed by the ancient forces of wind, water and time is like no other place.  It is the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.  There is a large parking lot here providing a staging area for off road vehicles to prepare to mount the sand dunes.  Delightfully, there are also clear shallow lakes with tree islands casting their orange shadows into the water.
