Lori Putnam’s paintings illustrate her personal response to her subjects. The artist travels worldwide to make sketches in oil which then serve as resource materials for larger paintings created in her Tennessee studio. Regarded as one of the top, living American Impressionists, her subject matter knows no boundaries. Instead she focuses on the rhythm and color harmonies of the natural landscape, the lightplay on her still life subjects, and the distinctive character of a figure’s stance.
Putnam’s list of professional associations and exhibition awards is extensive, including recent honors from The Oil Painters of America, The Salmagundi Club, The American Impressionist Society, The Portrait Society of America, and many prestigious plein air organizations.
