Whether sailing Alaska coastal waters or snorkeling Hawaiian shores, V Rae chronicles natural life through bold portraits that leap from the canvas to your heart. Defying convention in a startling fusion of color and negative space, V paints Freestyle Expressions that transport each personal encounter through time and space, sharing with the world her seamless blend of art, nature and individual personality. Like Humpback whales, V migrates between Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii each year painting from platforms frequented by her subjects.
Artist's narrative: Piercing amber eyes directed through inkblots adrift on a translucent sea. I could tell these two were going to be a challenge. Top Gun rarely drops his mask, but the three of us shared magical walks through their illusory world until the portrait pleased us all...then they were off.
