Adair Payne, He Speaks for the Land

Every now and then the work of a new, or new to me artist, will grab me with it's beauty and take my breath away. Elspeth McLean. Thomas Kinkade. Hillary Eddy. Jack Vettriano. Stephen Morath.

Well, today I happened upon another. 

         Adair Payne. 

Born in northern California, Adair showed interest in painting the beautiful land around him at a very early age. 

He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1984 with a degree in Graphic Design and spent a few years on the East Coast. He then returned to the west and his love of landscape painting. He now lives in Utah.

He speaks for the land.

Adair uses the emotional influence of light in his work to draw the casual observer into his landscape to find a moment of breathtaking beauty.

"My goal is find a fleeting spectacle of beauty in the mundane and simple landscape."
-Adair Payne

"You've succeeded, buddy."
-Carol Ann Kauffman

I claim nothing here as my own. I simply want to share this delightful artist with others. -CAK
