"Living at the beach gives me plenty of opportunity for subject matter," says Faye. "On this particular day in early summer, the sunlight was perfect. The surf was up and everyone was hurrying to get out and catch the waves. I could almost hear the youngest little girl shouting, 'wait up.'" This painting was created on Belgian linen, mounted on birch. The loose and active brushwork creates movement and a sense of excitement as the children rush into the water.

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.
