Lori Putnam has a winner on her hands. She keeps entering it in competitions, and it keeps winning.
In October, Putnam’s painting “Down to the Sea” earned the artist $4,000 when it won Third Place in the American Impressionist Society’s Juried Exhibition in Denver. Then, the Oil Painters of America gave the painting the Second Place award in the Associate Member category of its Fall 2014 Online Showcase. That put another $1,500 in Putnam’s pocket.
She’s going to need bigger pockets soon.
