Faye was visiting New York when she captured the photo of this girl walking in the light rain. "I am primarily a figure painter, and I was struck by the dazzling reflections of the city lights serving as the perfect backdrop for this young girl caught without an umbrella as she hurried along the street," says Faye. Warm light from the cars and signage contrast the cool greens and purples in the scene. Impressionist brushwork brings to mind the sound of rain falling on the pavement.

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.
