Black oaks dominate the older dunes at Illinois Beach State Park, and here a leaf has fallen among the stems of little bluestem from the end of the season. I love it all, there~from the gentle undulations of the dunes to the detail on the sand at my feet. 6x6" canvas with wide gallery-wrap edges, painted black.

Melissa Blue Fine Art 
Melissa has devoted many years to honing her craft, capturing the beauty she finds in the natural world. Her work is informed by a degree in biology as well as many hours in the field, studying how plants and creatures form communities. She is particularly drawn to the connections she finds~plants to geology, insects to plants. "I always knew I was meant to be an artist, but when I started monitoring butterflies at Illinois Beach State Park, I knew I'd found my subject." ~Melissa
