"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.

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.
