DescriptionA solitary gull flies over beach sand dunes while a sign on the fence warns to 'keep of the dunes' in this scene. The clear sky and fence shadows indicate it is a sunny afternoon and the wild dunes are peaceful, guarded by the dunes and the half buried fence.Dune fences are common along many parts of the shores, holding the sand in place through wind and storms. This painting evokes the peace of a summer beach in soft colors and a classic style that would accent almost any decor.
