Kelly Kane’s Pick of the Week: Scuze Me While I Kiss the Sky

“I prefer places that are primitive, almost primordial, with few or no human artifacts. Over the years, I have returned again and again to New Mexico, the Eastern Sierra, and the Anza-Borrego Desert, just to name a few. I also am attracted to places where the colors are more vibrant, which has resulted in a preference for painting in arid climates and in some higher elevations where the light doesn’t have too blue of a cast.”
— Molly Lipsher, “Adventures in Pure Color”
