Ever since I first visited Paris, I have been impressed by the professionalism and dignity of the waiters at the restaurants I visited.  Whenever I could, I would discretely photograph them to use as reference material for paintings upon return to my studio.    I applied texture to the panel before adding the first bit of color in order to create a  more interesting effect.

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.
