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: Torn between burning curiosity and skittish caution, it was apparent little Ice had gotten in way over her head. With panic stricken eyes, there she sat on an ice flow, surrounded be a pod of hungry Orca. Caring not to witness the natural order of things, we dropped sail and drifted in to offer mediation. The lovely strongwilled Orca declined, slipped beneath the surface and were off. Ice spotted the oportunity, bid us a flipper-flipping adieu and plunged into the glacial blue depths, no doubt relieved to be skipping lunch.
