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
— John Payne
