Description Another Master Painted Image! This is a magnificent river in NZ which has an ethereal feel and spritual tug to it with the heavenly shaft of light beaming down in the background carrying one's eye there and back around again. This image is easily enjoyed for years due to the complexity of each loving brush stroke. The viewer can feel the coolness travel downstream into their lap as they sit and enjoy the depth of this transcending scenic.
Sue Rakes, Raleigh Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I am beginning to forage into my Fine Art archives and process brand new Fine Art Landscapes for purchase! Bear with me as I develop this catalog of images.
Sue’s work has been published and has been on exhibit Nationally and Internationally.
Her awards include, among many, Best of Show, Fuji Masterpiece Award, and the Best Wedding Album of the Year Award.
Sue has been fine-tuning her craft for the last 14 years training at one of the best photography schools in the country.
She was recently awarded a Master of Photography from the Professional Photographers of America, a distinguished award granted to an elite 3% of Professional Photographers worldwide.
Her artistry “captures the essence of the scene or moment, and her photos captivate the viewer”.
“Great work seems so natural and “right” that the role of the artist is not conspicuous, as if they just channeled into existence something that belonged all along. Sue’s photographs welcome the viewer into that moment in that place without calling attention to the genius of her craft. The beauty speaks, for itself, through Sue’s medium.” T.S. Clark, Ph.D
