    I have a colection of photos.Putman painting me,his daughter, his son holding a baby. I met the family in the early “80s” on a trip to Cal. and was invited for dinner. We bardered, I permed his daughters hair, and gave Putt a hair cut. I have the photo of me cutting it. In return he painted me. They where a nice family. I flew back to MA with the painting on my lab. I would like to find family to send photos. could you help me?

    Does anyone know if Donald Putman ever did watercolor for a charity in Penang? I have a unique picture that I was told was a tourist watercolor and worthless, but the signature is very similar to “Putt”.

    Thanks for any help.

    I personaly knew Putt, most of his immediate and extended family. What a wonderful experience! I used to pitch a tent on their property by lewis creek and barbequed many times. Oakhurst is very beautiful to see and the fishing is great too.There are many web sites to reference Putts work.I personaly have a few autographed prints that I cherish deeply. He will be remembered!

    I dated his nephew Mark Putman for years back in the 70’s. I have some paintings of his. Also, a water painting of Mark he did. I remember Putt was such a practial joker. I enjoyed his company
