Lori Putnam
“Route 66”
Oil on linen
30 x 36 in.
Tennessee artist Lori Putnam has never met a landscape she didn’t like. Putnam’s painting travels across the U.S. and Europe have been instrumental in her artistic development. “Light, colors, atmosphere… it’s different everywhere I paint,” says the artist. “Seeing that difference and experimenting with ways to interpret it are huge lessons. I take these lessons back into the studio when I work there as well, and strive to maintain that fresh, on-the-spot feeling of painting from life.” Both her plein air work and her studio paintings have received numerous awards including the Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, Salmagundi Club New York, the Portrait Society of America and many respected plein air organizations and events.
Along with “Route 66,” Putnam will have three additional works for display and purchase at the Traveling the West Art Show and Sale October 22–24 at Southwest Gallery in Dallas.
