West Michigan painter captures a single landscape from all 50 states

Jun 8, 2016

Let's say you're an artist.

You've spent years capturing the beauty of your home state.

And now, a new adventure calls to you: hit the road with your paints, brushes and easel, and capture a landscape from all 50 states.

Do you talk yourself out of this immense undertaking? Or give in to that siren call?

Saugatuck artist Anne Corlett chose to answer that call of adventure.

After three years, 29,604 miles of driving and 164 days away from home, she's done it.

The result is a collection of 50 paintings she's calling "Easel on Down the Road."

Corlett joined us on today's Stateside to talk about her journey, her art, and what she plans to do next.
