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: Morning Virga

“Every good painting — even a representational one — has to have a solid abstract foundation. I look for subjects that demonstrate contrasts in value, color temperature, and line. With the ever-changing sky, rocks that vary from dark gray and red to white, and the variety of greens in the vegetation, there’s never a lack of great subjects at the Grand Canyon.” ~ John D Cogan (“From River to Rim”)
