Breathing Dreams Like Air | pastel | 9.5″ h x 8.5″ w | 2019
Our beloved dog Juki had a difficult existence before she came to live with us. Here she is in the freshness and security of a summer afternoon in her true home.
From F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby – ‘A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about. ‘
