Lynden Cowan has been painting most of her life. This self-taught artist is drawn to the Canadian landscape and is noted for her ability to make the viewer feel that they are part of the scene. Her preferred medium is oil on canvas, but the artist also enjoys working with a variety of other materials, such as painting on GPS and egg tempura.     The artist has many limited edition giclee prints to her credit, and these are done on archival quality paper, or canvas.     Lynden's original works can be found in private and corporate collections across North America, and she invites you tovisit her online at...

  Johnny Bower passed away on Boxing Day, 2017 . I always thought of him as a very personable, sweet man. In 2005, I was selected to create a painting for Peel Regional Police to be presented to Johnny as he was their Honorary Police Chief. They had certain key elements they wanted in the painting, and the family sent private photos so they could surprise him at a banquet. I painted the background as a feeling of ice to tie all the elements together. Johnny, you will be missed.
