Gordon Lightfoot's song on the wall

Whilst in Canada I saw a print of the Edmund Fitzgerald hanging on the wall of one of the Canadian cousins and thought that was special to the cousin, having been signed by Gordon Lightfoot. However when I asked about it, it seems these prints are available for sale to anyone.
"The painting was done by an artist in Essex, Ontario, the hometown of my husband. The main picture is of the ship sailing under the bridge near Detroit (at least I think that’s the bridge), and it is signed by Gordon Lightfoot. The smaller print is of the lighthouse at Whitefish Bay where the ship sank, and it is signed by Chief Jerry Cox, the man on duty the night the ship sank."
