Open edition print by V. Rae

Image size: 16 1/2" x 12"

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: Twelve feet apart on a vertical plain, yet separated by two dimensions. I must have been a sight!  Snorkel pooched lips, smashed nose, bulging eyes staring in wonder through mascara streaked glass, propelled afloat by day-glow green flippers.  Gazing up, the powerful strokes of her quiet and gentle spirit lured mine to the crystalline depths.  I now wear the shell of my insecurities with grace and a smile.
