Artist Faye Vander Veer captures the essence of nightlife at Cafe de Flore in Paris. In the style of the Impressionists, she uses her understanding of color harmony and energetic brushwork to create an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation. The soft glow of the lights in the cafe and distant buildings adds to the ambiance. "I love watching people, whether in solitude, deep in thought, or interacting with others," says Faye. "There is something so peaceful about it."
Please note: this painting is stretched with staples on the sides of the canvas and will need a frame for optimal display.

Artist Faye Vander Veer seeks out moments with engaging narratives and captures them with an impressionist style. She describes herself as an observer of people living their day-to-day lives. Her goal is to offer viewers a look into her sensory memory while also prompting the beginning of a story. Faye always keeps her camera by her side, ready to capture reference material. "For me, each painting is an opportunity to explore my emotional reactions to the color and light I observe," says Faye. She enjoys being in her glass-walled studio surrounded by nature to inspire her creative process. When she is not putting paint on canvas, Faye can be found in nature, journaling or writing poetry. Her artwork has been showcased in both American Art Collector and Art of the West magazines.
