Estes Park Plein Air
It's time for the annual Estes Park Painting the Parks plein air event. From August 15- 28, about 60 participating artists from around the country will be painting in and around Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. The public is invited to watch the artists as they work. The paintings will be exhibited and sold between August 29 and September 30.
Nashville, Tennessee artist Lori Putnam stopped by on Sunday, on her way up to Estes, to buy some panels. If her name is familiar, it might be because she's the designer of the Plein Air Porter - a safe & secure way to carry large canvases or even send them as checked luggage. She had just come from a two-week plein air event in Wyoming (she travels often, offering workshops in different parts of the world).
