"Country Road - Leelanau County" -- plein air field study -- oil on birch panel 8x10"
Love those cool shadows across the gravel roads! While painting this one, I turned to my friend Al Maciag (who was painting a few feet away) and said, "This looks like a pile of gumballs!" But I stuck with it and managed to get a decent painting. Sometimes a few bold, straight (more or less!) strokes can make clarity out of chaos!
