Completed in March 2014 out of beautifully colored alabaster, the subject reclines gently with her hand over the edge of the base.

Hercules and Atlas
Done in January 2015 of translucent alabaster and chlorite.
Atlas was a Titan who fought against the Olympians and lost. As his punishment, Zeus condemned him to forever hold the orb of the heavens above the earth. Hercules was given twelve tasks to perform to atone for previous actions. One task was to retrieve golden apples from the garden of Hera which was tended by the daughters of Atlas and protected by a three-headed dragon. In exchange for holding the orb, Atlas retrieved the apples and would have left, but Hercules tricked him into holding the orb again leaving Atlas once again to hold the orb forever.
