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: T slipped off his pee coat, shook and ordered a Red Dog. All he was looking for was someone who understood his true colors. Warming his tail by the fire, T gazed into the sparkling amber wondering if it was just too much to ask. I captured the mood on a sketch pad from a far corner of the bar. One look in his eyes and you can tell he's no ordinary pup.
