Everyone has been in a picture posting mood this week. I don't really have a picture of myself to post (being the one behind the camera usually) so I decided to post another one of my drawings, for anyone who is interested in looking. Some of you might remember the "Zebra in the Parlor" picture I posted a while back. Like it, this one is also colored pencil. Quite a few years ago when my kids were young, I took them to the circus. While it was an enjoyable experience overall, I was saddened to see the big, majestic elephants reduced to a life in a cage on the road. Then, the only time they get to come out, they follow the same mundane routine, doing tricks for our amusement. What a sad life for an animal! I wished I could sneak back later and free them all! So this idea of the sad circus elephant came from that experience. It really stuck with me through the years, so recently, I made this drawing.
