Folky hunting painting

The painter of this naive hunting scene obviously loved nature's abundance. An owl in a tree, a flying squirrel, a bear, a grouse, a bird of prey -- they're all there. Surprisingly, this painting, which I would guesstimate is c. 1950, is unsigned. If I had created this wonderful scene, I certainly would have put my name to it.


  1. You don't see too many paintings with a flying squirrel.

  2. I wish the squirrels in our yard could fly. I'd like them a lot more.
