Charleston artist Lynn Payne was trained as a fashion illustrator and pursued a variety of creative endeavors before she turned to painting in earnest after her daughter, Georgia, was born. Payne now heads to her attic studio weekdays while her daughter is in school, a schedule that provides structure.
Payne paints a variety of subjects, from whimsical women to wine bottles to, in this case, a bottle of sparkling water. Her favorite subject these days is inspired by the garden and outdoors. Her work will be displayed at TerraSalis Garden Center in Malden on Saturday.
A friend's East End home is the subject of this painting, which includes the garden.
