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: Fire Ceremony at Har Ki Paidi

“The dog has to go out, laundry needs folding, a family member calls, and in no time you’re on social media scrolling through a friend’s photos. No matter your good intentions, the comfort of routine distractions can get in the way of painting, and before you know it, a plan to begin your painting day at 7 a.m. can turn easily into a 2 p.m. start. To break that routine, I like to paint in new or unusual places, meeting my muse openly and allowing creativity to flow. I’ve found that some of my best paintings come from plein air events or outings with friends when I connect with Mother Nature.”
— Jennifer Stottle Taylor, “Out of India”
