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: Pine Tree

“I have my eyes open all the time. After I’ve parked the car and I’m starting to walk towards, say, a waterfall, I might suddenly see a few trees or rocks. And the scene hits me. It’s not the waterfall, it’s this! I take these intuitive hits very seriously. They are telling me that something out there has touched something inside of me and I should respond to it. Long ago, having found something like that, I would take another five minutes to look around for something else and then go back to it if I found nothing better. These days I don’t do that. If it hits me then it has to be now, and I start work.” — Albert Handell (“The Power of Now”)
