Joanne by Seashore

“Joanne by Seashore” is an original figurative painting by Canadian artist, Raymond Chow.  The painting depicts a woman floating through the sand in a calm manner with the waves behind her.  She almost blends into the sand as if she’s one  with the beach.  This painting is part of Mr. Chow’s “White Gown” series where each painting is depicted with a woman wearing a white gown dress.  

 

Artist Statement

“I wanted to be an architect but I found I could draw a crooked line better than a straight one.  So, I thought I’d better become an artist.”

 

Raymond Chow

Raymond Chow won early recognition in his teenage years after winning many art competitions.  This led to many art dealers visiting his parent’s home, ready to buy a Raymond Chow original.

In the mid-1950’s, Raymond began his art career creating black ink drawings of Vancouver buildings. His drawings sold for around $50 in those days which he created using his favorite 25 cent ball point ink pen.

Throughout his career, Raymond met many figureheads who have commissioned him for paintings.  Some have included Clint Eastwood, Sunny and Cher, and Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.

Other collector’s have included Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Paul Anka, Raymond Burr, and Gordon Lightfoot.

Raymond Chow has also exhibited with prominent contemporary artists including AJ Casson, Andrew Wyeth, and many more. 

He has had a lengthy art career of over 60 years where his artwork has gone from art galleries across Canada to as far as the Royal Palace of India in Rajasthan. 

Now, he enjoys his time traveling around Eastern Canada and supporting the Arts.
