Sketchbook Project 2011 - Page 43

Le zoo est un endroit qui me met en général mal à l'aise . Certes cela permet aux jeunes générations de voir certains animaux qu'ils n'auraient jamais l'occasion de découvrir mais je "vois" tant de tristesse dans certains yeux....
A zoo is a place that often makes me feel uncomfortable. I know it gives the younger generations an opportunity to see species they might never encounter and yet, I "see" so much sadness in some eyes ......

How moving! This is a great sketch and I've enjoyed watching your journal grow over the last few months (?), weeks (?).

I love this! Your sketchbook pages have all been very interesting. I'd love to see them in person!

You have such a lovely thought.. How true

I feel the same way. But, I think some zoos are getting better at providing a more rewarding environment for the animals. Our small science center is an amazing place to visit that has "miniature" versions of animals. Instead of Llamas it has Alpacas. :) But, I do understand your sentiment. I love your sketch, it brings to life your sensitivity for the polar bear and all other animals, too.

Oh yes, zoos make me very sad. There isn't a single creature in them that I don't feel bad for. Your drawing evokes those feelings in me, too. nancy

This beautiful Martine and at the same time wistful and sad.

Lovely sketch Martine! I know exactly how you feel, I feel the same about Zoos in fact I was having a discussion this week about them. We only have Zoos really for our own benefit or the fact that our actions as humans have caused them to be there. I actually can't visit Zoos now for this very reason. This became strong in me after visiting Asia and seeing bears, cats and dogs in cages, which has made me repell the idea of caged animals. Thank you for your thought provoking image.

Very well done and I so often have the same thought when I see animals at the zoo. They always look so bored!

Great work Martine! The expressiveness just works so well here. I love how it's so imaginative^^
