Raffle of a George D. Smith Painting

We Are Honored to be Allowed to Raffle This Beautiful Painting

It is the original painting, not a print.  And what a painting!  The grizzly bear, icon of the west's animal kingdom, wanders past remnants of fall foliage and across an early snowfall.  

While scientists may generally call it the North American brown bear, we'll settle for grizzly.  Is this one "Movin' On" for its den or to find a bit more food while it's still available?  Hang this painting on your wall, enjoy the beauty of it, and provide your own idea of why it is in this wonderfully rendered scene.
