Nature

We are elated to receive another addition to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Artist-in-Residence Collection. This wonderful watercolor of the Chellberg Farm area was created by James Johnson. James traveled from Grand Rapids, Michigan to paint the dunes. He spent two weeks exploring the sundry landscapes and was drawn to the lines and the light of the windmill and granary.
