Ferocious Topiary Bear Secret Chalk Drawing

I had a man ask me if this ferocious topiary bear chalk drawing was about surgery or a medical condition.  "Surgery?"  I asked.  I didn't understand.  "Oh, you know?" he replied, "because of the window in the chest and a rose growing there."  I paused and thought about it.  Yeah, I could see what he was talking about.  Something being cut out and then something new growing there.


I love it when people come up to me and share their own stories inspired by my secret chalk drawings.  I think my intention for this drawing was to show that we protect our vulnerable parts with ferocity when maybe we don't need to.  The window in the chest is that soft and open part that we are defending it with tooth and claw.  What stories of yours do you see here?
