Lori Putnam: From the colors of the southwest to the coast of England, Lori Putnam’s work captures their uniquely different landscape, place, and time. Painting on location is an important part of Putnam’s work. Creating studies in more than two dozen different countries, and hundreds of locations throughout the United States, she understands the subtleties that characterize a location. Putnam paints smaller pieces in plein air and returns to her studio in Tennessee to create large works.
