In this weekly series Kelly Kane, Editor-in-Chief of Plein Air Magazine, shares a favorite painting and artist quote from a recent issue.

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: “Crestones, Late March”

“I was attracted to the chamisa and dark piñon in the foreground, which perfectly framed the rich red mountain and the magnificent receding peaks above. The inclement weather not only provided a neutral gray tone that set off the color of the mountain, it also added the challenge of wind and misty droplets that left their mark in the sky wash. I like when the elements actually make their way into the painting and let the viewer know the piece was done en plein air. These are the days I live for!”
— Stephen Quiller (“These Are the Days,” Feb-Mar 2021 PleinAir Magazine)
