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: “Sharp Right Turn”

“The age-old question is whether we should paint what we know to be true, or paint what we see. I try to paint what I know to be true. … I often put things in my paintings that are not thought of as traditionally beautiful. They give a sense of reality and place to the picture. It’s not just some fantasy.” —John Brian Guernsey, “Truth in Mood” (August-September 2018 PleinAir Magazine)
