Paint Annapolis 2022 Spotlight: Kirk Larsen

"Plein air painting combines two of the greatest things on the planet… being outdoors and creating art. I love discovering new places and having the opportunity and challenge to capture the feeling, the vibe and essence of that place whether it be dramatic or serene in paint, right there on the spot. The subject can be spectacular or mundane and the act of painting it brings a closeness and familiarity just as much as getting to know a person. The joy of that creation can then be multiplied tenfold when someone gets to take that piece home and share that joy with others, for generations to come." - Kirk Larsen
