"Illie the Grizzly" 12"x12" oil on canvas by Leslie Newman


Meet Illie. Illie is a grizzly bear who recently passed away while sleeping
in her den at the West Yellowstone, Mt. Grizzly and Wolf  Discovery
Center. I have been following the center for yrs, and appreciate
learning about the great work they do caring for these wild animals.
I painted Illie and will donate This painting to the center in her memory!
The center is open at 8:30 a.m.365 days a yr to view the animals.
like them on face book and watch for the cool pictures they share.
