Magnificent indeed...this is beautiful Kay! :-)
Fabulous take on the prompt. Love the sketch!
ph to what lengths we will go...poor bird, poor elephant, and poor poor fools that will pay to see it and cheer....
Eeee! I like it! Almost speechless myself, and enchanted. Sweet drawing, too.
Desperate times, desperate remedies! Great idea for your Magpie.
Beautiful sentiments in the words!! I hate the things that animals are made to do under the big tent, not their life, sad!!
Oh, this is very, VERY clever! I just love it.
Oh, this is very VERY clever. I just love it.
Hello! I loved this ... it reminded me of one of my favorite novels 'Water for Elephants'
Excellent interpretation and natty sketching! :)
This is a lovely response to the prompt.
many thanks for all your encouraging comments..this is a real 'get away from reality' for a few moments for me and i'm glad you liked it..xx kay
This reminded me so much of the last tawdry circus I saw as a child. Even I could see that elephants weren't at all happy, and that made me sad. Vultures, indeed!If you're curious. my Magpie 85 is Topsy.
I think this was a great take for the theme
I love the notion of the empty glue pots...tons of them...
It was very hard not to write sad words to accompany this image. Your poem made me think of "Water for Elephants" and the terrible life that circus animals have...
Wonderful sketch and a disturbingly memorable poem to accompany it!
Thank you for your comments, several people have mentioned the novel' water for elephants' i tried to read the book but had to stop as its cruelty upset me, however my daughter says i HAVE to watch the film, so i am working my way up to that!!...a have drawn a lot of circus style pictures lately but this is the first elephant one!!!..thank you for visiting..Kay X
You said just enough in your poem to paint a great mental picture (and your sketch adds to it), then stopped.
Thank you for visiting....don't be shy...say hello!!
