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: Looking East

“I find it useful to take an extra minute and put into words what I love about a scene. It allows me to designate a focal area. The painting becomes the story, and then it’s a matter of what will support that story — even moving a tree to strengthen the intended message if necessary. … I think painters sometimes forget that they are trying to say something. I am always trying to tell some emotional story.”
