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: “Iris”

“While the last decade has undoubtedly brought change to my work, I’m certain that it has been an incremental process. Each day I’m faced with the same question, ‘How can I honestly address the feelings and impressions of the moment?’ And, of course, layered on top of that is the question of how these impressions fit into the continuity of my body of work. So, while the past 10 years have been a period of ongoing growth and development, it is with the acknowledgment that there is no finish line.”
— George Van Hook (“Then & Now,” Feb-Mar 2021 PleinAir Magazine)
