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

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Iowa River Bank

“Living and painting as I do in the Midwest, I’m often faced with landscapes that on first glance provide little to inspire. Over time I’ve learned to concentrate less on the scenery and more on the shapes, colors, and textures provided by nature. Today I actually seek out subjects that challenge my ability to create a more appealing version of the landscape before me.”
