Breathe Out So I Can Breathe You In

"Breathe Out So I Can Breathe You In"  60" Round, oil and sharpie on canvas.  This is a tribute to my thesis teacher, Gillian Jagger.  Although we both share animals as subjects, we are polar opposites in painting styles - I am obsessed with pop culture, and she is all about the natural environment.  And this is my attempt to meld the two in one raw conversation.
