For this show I am planning on twenty small oil paintings. These will be studio work with several Plein Air works from my experiences visiting Leelanau during the various seasons, sketching and photographing similar locations. The works will be primarily of Leelanau landscapes, roads and skies. The theme for this show is: M22 Roads & skies
