Old barn

The Leelanau peninsula is like the tip of the little finger in the “mitten” that is the Michigan lower peninsula. It’s right across Lake Michigan from Door County Wisconsin, and shares a lot of the geographic characteristics. But, with the dunes, I think Michigan has more sand. The whole area is covered with farms, orchards, and more recently, vineyards. A great location for painting.

This is a farm I came across while traversing as many of the backroads as I could when I was up there last month. It will be a part of my show, opening Friday at MacBeth & Co. in Glen Arbor.
