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: Magic in West Glacier

“Avoid wasting too much time on the hunt. It does no good to go out thinking, ‘I want to paint a mountain today,’ only to pass by a dozen beautiful streams and lakes along the way. Always looking around the corner for the next thing that might be better is just frustrating. It is said that one of the reasons John Singer Sargent got so good is that he saw opportunity in everything. He found a spot and just painted it, rather than wandering around all day searching.
