Oil Painting - Portraits & Figures

John Payne is a graduate of the Maryland Institute of Art. John spends countless hours searching for photos that evoke a nostalgic feeling which he strives to bring to life. His first goal is discover forgotten images tucked away amongst old books of past generations. John's next major task is to transform these images onto canvas. John says, "As an artist, I do what I can with the use of oil paint and canvas to provide the viewer with a clear vision of a moment lost in time".

John's approach to painting is to capture the observer's imagination and draw them into the painting. John says, "I want to transport the viewer back into time. I like to paint people from the past, from all social classes, interacting in everyday situations. I want my art to create a mood, evoke a feeling, and even bring back old memories. Today, so many of us exist in a world that is fast paced. It's difficult to slow down, take a breath and see all the beauty that surrounds us".
