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: Outdoor Self-Portrait

“I spent a couple of months with Odd Nerdrum at his studio, and then immediately after moved into a studio with Michael Klein, Joshua LaRock, and Louis Carr. Being immersed in these two environments full of beautiful paintings made something “click” — not technically, but aesthetically — in my work, which felt like a creative breakthrough. It could best be described as a shift of focus in my learning, from technique to aesthetic.”
