When Lizzie came into my life on June 1, 1996, she was six-and-a-half years old. She lay on the kitchen rug where she fell asleep in this beautiful twisted position. Lizzie, 11/23/89 - 10/12/06, was a senior citizen and over all these years she often napped in this S-curve. The hills and valleys of her body remind me of the Flint Hills in Kansas; they are beautiful to my eye and ideal for a sculpture in the round. "This is a marvelous and true position," states Sue McClelland, longtime dachshund breeder. Many thanks to a Sedona woman for commissioning “Siesta” in life-sized Miniature. Each is signed, numbered and includes my mark, Joy Beckner Bronze Sculptor. May “Siesta” bring you peace.
