Welcome to Payne Art and Paris Dreams
Don't ask me for an "artist statement". I don't have any goal other than to paint what I want to paint, when I want to paint it, and how I want to paint it.
Don't ask me what my art means. That's for YOU to decide! I'll tell you it means I just wanted to paint it. You will have to decide it's "meaning" because that is personal to you.
Don't ask me about my process either because whatever process I have is so natural it's like breathing. You wouldn't ask me how I breathe would you?
Other than studying art history in Paris in college and studying life in life, I don't have an art education. In fact, I didn't come to real painting until after age 50. And even then, it took a number of years before I cold learn to un-see reality and paint what I feel.
If you like to look at my art, then look. If you want to buy my art, then buy it. I will tell you that you are buying a part of my soul though. But don't ask me to explain that either.
If you are interested in purchasing my art, please contact me
I am proud to be the Featured Artist at Reflections Art Gallery, October 2013 and named "Most Evolved Artist"
