In this weekly series Kelly Kane, Editor-in-Chief of Plein Air Magazine, shares a favorite painting from the current issue.

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Essex Midday

“Because I value being outdoors and being in nature, I am drawn to painting landscapes, especially ones that have not been changed by heavy human influence. I find that being in those unpopulated places provides some sort of healing or respite from the crazy life I lead. When out painting, I am absorbing all of that, but also doing something that I’m really passionate about and that I really love. I feel a profound tie to the outdoors.”
