Biography
John D Cogan is an American painter, born 24 February 1953. He currently lives in Farmington New Mexico with his wife Karen.
John paints almost exclusively in acrylic, working on canvas or panel. He strives to capture creation's splendor in the landscapes of the American Southwest. His style is unique, consisting in thin underpainting and thicker finishes, rich pigments, glazes, scumbles and attention to detail. His focus is on color and the transient effects of light.
John earned his PhD in physics from Rice University in 1981. But finding more personal fulfillment in painting, he made it his lifelong vocation in October 1982.
The Grand Canyon has been one of John's favorite subjects and he has painted it hundreds of times in all seasons and weather.  He has participated in the Grand Canyon Association's Plein Air on the Rim from 2009 through 2017 as well as the 2009 Modern Masters show at Kolb Studio.

His painting "Waters of Evening" was used as the poster painting in 2016. The recent book, Art of the National Parks features John's paintings in the section on Zion National Park.
