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: Rain soaked moss wept emerald tears as morning sun caressed my wounded spirit. The storm had passed. Hiking midst soggy logs and kelp-cloaked bogs, my senses froze in the piercing gaze. High above the sparkling cove he spotted my vulnerable, earthbound body, swooped, and with lightening speed, snatched my soul to dazzling heights. Circling together, I saw again, the clearest insight is from above, where possibilities can't hide and horizons have no limit. The storm has passed.
