"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."
