While most of her workshop students were preparing to paint the New Zealand mountain range before them, Lori Putnam turned in the opposite direction to make this study of the clouds growing on the hillside behind them.

“I was able to set up and paint the scene before most of the students even got started,” she says. “Capturing this kind of drama is more important to me than painting the quintessential or expected, even if I have flown 19 hours to get there.”

Lori Putnam is taking America by storm, winning awards and gaining critical acclaim from top art historians like Jean Stern.

About Lori’s work, Jean says, “Like the natural light that is so prominent in her work, Lori Putnam’s art does not sit still, it is in constant motion.

“Lori treats viewers to the total plein air experience — not simply the effect of light, which she captures so well, but the movement inherent in fluid sunlight. It is the motion of life itself and Lori does this like no one else can.”
