I love creating paintings of restaurant and bar interiors. In this particular piece I played around with different compositions, lighting and color until I achieved the intimacy I was looking for. I would add some things, then take them out.  Finally, the painting spoke to me and said, "I'm done - sign me!" This piece is on masonite board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Faye

Faye Vander Veer encapsulates the beauty of the everyday in her paintings. She oftentimes catches interactions, such as an exchange between a little girl and her mother. She once painted a work based on a young woman she saw sitting on a rock in the middle of a stream. Faye currently lives in Virginia and has been greatly influenced by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, John Singer Sargent and Claude Monet.
