L. Wardown painting of lynx

I saw this at the Salvation Army store near my work. I mostly see the same prints in there all the time. I saw this, and snapped a photo and went back to work. I couldn’t find anything about the artist, who’s name is signed as L. Wardown. The painting is also dated 2/75 (February 1975). It was just very interesting, and it only cost $2. Hard to go wrong for $2. So I went back after work and bought it. I like the style of how the lynx is painted.
