Charles Payne lives in Pike Road. I have been an artist all my life. I have practiced plein air since 1964. I enjoy being outside and listening to the sound of birds. In the beginning, I usually painted or drew with India ink, but I have also used acrylic and oil. I do not have a favorite media. The variety of media is one of the true pleasures of art. I am motivated by the plants and creatures of the natural world. We cannot directly understand the immensity of the natural world and so experience awe when we see it.
