This piece is a greyscale observational charcoal drawing of a paper Bullhead. The bullhead itself is geometrically constructed and resembles a mask. The mask that this was drawn from was cut and glued together so the bullhead is very hard edged and geometric. There is a light course coming from above that casts a strong shadow to the left of the head.

This piece is a Grayscale portrait of actor and LGBTQIA+ activist Billy Porter. The background is painted in six distinct patches of vibrant colors of the rainbow. Billy is depicted with a large, black floppy hat that stretches from either side of the canvas panel. His shirt is highly geometrically patterned and the painting has been manipulated so the background colors and this geometric pattern interact.

This piece is a self portrait with a female figure as a frontal, foreground subject. The figure herself and the overall color scheme of the piece is very cool. The figure is divided into a more cool, blue side and a slightly warmer, more pale yellow side. This piece was highly inspired by Picasso’s self-portrait from his blue period.

This piece is a bedroom scene with a clear moldy cup, as the focal point. The cup is sitting on the nightstand and is very close in the foreground in relation to the viewer. Also on the nightstand is an orange, semi-transparent medicine bottle and an alarm clock that reads 4:03pm and is slightly skewed by the refraction of the cup. The color scheme of the piece is very dark with much of Payne's grey, dark blues, pale yellow, ocres, and dark browns.

This piece is a still life painting of a pillow that has been manipulated with tape, string and extra stuffing for the visual interest. The lighting has been manipulated so it is very saturated and colorful. So there are three distinct light sources hitting the pillow, a bright red coming down from the top left,  a teal-blue coming up from the bottom right, and a more natural, yellow light coming from the frontal direction of the viewer.

This piece depicts a halloween party with three different figures. One figure is depicted deeper in the background, centered in the image wearing a pig mask. The second figure is closing in the foreground, facing away from the first figure outward to the right at a three-quarter view wearing a wolf mask. The third figure is facing away from the first figure, and the second toward the left. This figure is wearing a red T-shirt and a mask of Kim jun-Un. The piece is meant to give the feeling of being alone in

This piece is a still life of 8 popsicles that are scattered from left to right. There is a red popsicle all the way to the left at a slight diagonal with the bottom jutting out to the left. Consecutively from there going right, there is a blue popsicle. Then a lime green popsicle snug against the blue popsicle parallel with it. Next there is a pink and red popsicle overlapping in an “X”. Lastly there is a green and then blue popsicle which overlap to almost make an upside down “V” shape. The overall still
