Image size: 12" X 16"
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: Too late! I winced as the ungracious remark toppled from my tongue and rolled across the table in her direction. With no reaction, she scooped up the comment, slipped it in her pocket, smiled and asked, "So how was the rest of your day?" I gazed into her forgiving eyes and marveled how coffee with a friend can brighten a day.
