A June “Sip and See” at Entre Nous in the Oil Center featured Lafayette artist Delie Putnam. A variety of refreshing champagne drinks complemented Youngsville-based Sugarbelle’s beautifully decorated — and delicious — sugar cookies, but all eyes were on Putnam’s colorful art and the feeling of happiness it evokes.
A self-taught artist, Putnam paints in acrylic, oil and wax, at times using collage elements and shiny resin finishes. Her love for art and curiosity about its process began when she started collecting original art for her home. View her work at delieputnam.com or on Instagram @delieputnam.
