Open edition print by V. Rae

Image size: 16" 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: 

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.
