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: Key Bridge Arches

“My job as an artist is to bridge that gap between viewer and painting, to reach them on an emotional level. I want them to look at my work and be surprised at how beautiful an old bridge or gritty city can be, to feel the light and mood of a landscape, or sense the mystery and anticipation in an empty chair. I want the viewer to become aware of their world for a while, to put their phone away, slow down, experience a moment, and be fully present.”
