In this weekly series Kelly Kane, Editor-in-Chief of Plein Air Magazine, shares a favorite painting from the current issue.

Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Maritime Sunrise

“In the studio you have seemingly unlimited time. One of the many fantastic things about painting plein air is that you never have unlimited time. To me, that mimics life. Unexpected things happen and there can be surprises along the way. There may be bugs, wind, and distractions, but for me, I feel so alive and experience time and place so much more intensely than when I’m working from a photo.”

— Christine Lashley (“When More Is Not More,” October-November 2018) (PleinAir Magazine)
