I just finished this painting I have been meaning to do for years. M22 is a highway in northwest Michigan synonymous with summer vacation for many of us. It winds along the shore of Lake Michigan from Onekama, north through Frankfort and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, then up the Leelanau Peninsula and along Traverse Bay to Traverse City. With historic, quaint, summer resort towns all along the way, it is designated a Michigan Heritage Route. To me, since childhood, it has meant going to Camp on Portage Lake.

North M22, oil, 16" x 20"
Available as a giclee print, $95, email me.

Fabulous! I feel "vacation excitement" building everytime I see an M22 sign on the roadside.
