the sad bears

Eli has recently been so inspired by her trips to the zoo and to various carnivals, that she just feels the need to draw some circus animals. When she visited the zoo the other week, she absolutley fell in love with the bears. They were so playful and wise at the same time. It broke her heart though, when she saw one of the bears in captivity repeatedly walking in a circle in the corner of the enclosure. The bear's footprints consistently followed the same pattern that there were large holes in the ground where each foot went. It made Eli realise that there is a dark and sad side to the places where humans seek enjoyment - the bears are sad. This set of circus bear drawings Eli is doing is going to be called 'The Sad Bears'.
