"Summer was coming to a close when I noticed this young girl lying so peacefully at the water's edge," says Faye. "The girl seemed lost in thought, so contemplative, perhaps reflecting on her summer and the future that lies ahead. A quick photograph inspired me to create this oil painting reminding me of a moment in time when a young girl, seemingly unnoticed, was having 'Reflections of Summer.'"

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.
