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: Winterburn Creek, WV

“I work as rapidly as possible to record the sensations of a place and time. Depending on the size of my canvas, this can take as little as a couple of hours, or as much as four days. The other step in the process is to take the painting back to the studio and make sense of these sensations. Everything slows down in the studio. As the painting nears completion, every mark is carefully considered. A successful painting will have benefited from the two phases — rapid and careful applications — in equilibrium.”
— Lynn Boggess (“What to Know About Painting Snow”)
