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.
he crawled up on a mining barge
just down from Nome
two weeks old, hungry and cold
he sat there…alone
scanning the sea with hope filled eyes
he searched for mom’s warm heart
but in the mourning sky hope slowly died
wrenching their lives apart
when all seems lost and pain runs rife
a powerful force stands near
the spirit of love that inhabits all life
and dries the pain filled tear
scooped in love’s arms, the walrus is charmed
by strange creatures that feel just like mom
bundled and cuddled in the journey from harm
to comfort in his new family home
caring acts, by day and by night
stand by to heal wounds embedded by strife
inevitable clouds that envelop in fright
invitations to love that deliver new life.
