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: Take Me! Take Me!

“I like to go fishing, and when I was younger what mattered was how many fish I caught. As I got older, I started to appreciate the outdoors and the experience, and every once in a while I caught a fish that I could hang on the wall. That’s a lot like plein air. It’s fabulous to release yourself, to get out of the studio, to go outside and basically stand in your painting. The experience of that moment in time is the number one thing, and at the end of the day you might come home with a wall painting.”
