About the Artist
Earl Bowser was born in Canada in 1962. He is of French,
English, Scottish, and some Chippewa Indian ancestry. He had a keen interest in drawing
from the age of 8 and switched to painting by the time he was
18. Graduating from the Alberta College of Art in Canada when he
was 22 years old, Jonathon struggled for many years as a young artist
in Calgary, Alberta. Now, however, he has gone on to
international acclaim. Besides
being published by us, his work is also seen in galleries
around the world. His original artwork, however, is mainly
distributed amongst private collections like ours but is also
occasionally found publicly throughout Europe, North America,
Jonathon's name in any search engine, will result in hundreds of
thousands of results. I am constantly amazed at the different
uses for and causes attached to his art.
I was fortunate to
have been Jonathon's patron for several years--in those early
years when he was not so well known or in such high demand. As a
result, we have most of his art--a huge collection of masterpieces. When standing and
gazing at one of Jonathon's paintings, one immediately
appreciates the difference between perspiration and
inspiration--though he expends plenty of the former in service
to the latter. I have seen him take as long as 9 months to
complete a work, but 3-5 months is more typical.
Jonathon's art is much like that of the old Masters, as his attention to detail is
immaculate, with vivid colors and near-invisible brushstrokes
being the rule rather than the exception. Jonathon's art is uniquely romantic, spiritual, and sensual; it
is revitalizing to the soul, warming to the heart, and
astounding to the eyes!
plates of Jonathon's artwork have been made for the Bradford Exchange, and his
work has been sold in galleries from
Carmel, California, to Calgary, Canada. Several of Jonathon's
pieces have even been stolen
by former Iraqi President, Sadam Hussein, to illustrate his
novel (Zabibah and the King)--both for the cover and interior of

event being held in the Javitz Convention Center, New York.

Notes From the
At first glance Jonathon's Artwork appears to be designed to appeal to men, and it does,
but not for the reasons one would think. While there is a
modicum of tastefully disguised nudity amongst his work, most of
the female figures in Jonathon's art are well-dressed. In actual fact,
Jonathon's art also appeals to women! All of the women in his
paintings display a great deal of self-confidence, are portrayed as being in perfect harmony with
nature, and appear very much in control of their own lives.
There is a definite air of serenity in most all of his works.
None of these women are anorexic, in fact, many are (certainly by today's
standards) gorgeously chubby--making one wonder why some people are so obsessed with becoming walking skeletons. Judging from men's reactions to Jonathon's female figures, I
would say that the women's magazine and fashion industry has it all wrong! They have deliberately mislead women
driving them down a very unhealthy path and towards a rather ugly set of ideals. The women in Jonathon's works of art certainly have no eating disorders and feel no need to starve themselves to garner the attention of men or that of society.
then, Jonathon's biggest fans are actually women. This is
because his art portrays more than just their appearance, he
captures the essence of their spirits. Female figures in Jonathon's artwork are
embodied with power, sensitivity, romance, and ability.
They are treated with a reverence and chivalry that places
womankind on a rather lofty pedestal. In a society which
constantly degrades, objectifies, and obstructs women's progress, art like
Jonathon Bowser's which upholds the ideals of reverence and
respect for women is like a breath of fresh air.
However, Jonathon's fascination with women and nature does not extend to men! He portrays us harshly, as often upsetting the perfect balance that his
feminine figures create, or at best as supporting actors. Thatís probably unfair, but
itís Jonathonís easel and brush. Jonathon's art is one stage that ladies have almost all to
themselves! Almost every woman that gazes upon Jonathon's art finds a few of his paintings that she can identify with personally. These then become icons
representing her and her life's struggles and dreams. Many
internet chat rooms and forums have women in them who use
figures from Jonathon's art for their display pictures. My wife
often encounters such women, and it is most amusing when she
tells them that the original artwork containing that particular
image hangs above our fireplace or in our bedroom, etc. The other
person naturally assumes that she is either chatting to a
consummate liar, or someone that is completely out of touch with reality. My
wife also identifies with Jonathon's art, having found that
Forest Wind, Invariance and Enlightenment, Born Again, and
Pastoral Symphony broadly describe the sequence of her own life's struggles and victories.
I am sure that you will find many themes
throughout Jonathon's work which will end up describing your life. I invite you to look deeply into each picture and see for yourself the past, the present, and even the future. Relive your life, or live vicariously through Jonathon's art. Dream a little. What the heck, dream a lot!
Dream about the romance and chivalry that once existed and that
still exists in your heart. It could become real again, so don't let it die.

Dedication of this Website:
Anyone who has known us
long will find this to be an unbelievable turn
of events. God
really must have a wonderful sense of humor, and irony! if there was anything that
family, friends, and peers could have hand-picked for us to do, it
wouldn't have been publishing fine art! So the next time
you categorically rule anything out for your life, you may
first want to ask for God's opinion, and prepare to be surprised
by His answer! It's thus with absolute humility
and thankfulness that we dedicate our online gallery to God
the Father and to God's Son, our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
