"I wanted to capture Bella's beautiful sweet face, her elegance, and graceful lines in this classic pose.

True to her heritage, Bella is a skilled thief who loves to rifle in my pockets. I often don't feel the gypsy thief until I see her lurking away with my reading glasses or pen in her month.

Bella loves to run and her body is engineered with a very narrow ribcage in front, which allows for unobstructed movement and speed. I have had sight-hounds for over 40 years and watching their beauty, humor, and agility has inspired countless sculptures in my head."
