Arabesque Movement - Ballet Dancer Canvas Print
This ballet dancer canvas print features the arabesque movement or position. The arabesque is a classic movement or position in ballet and can take some slightly different forms. This artwork was a request from a customer but one that I completely enjoyed tackling. Although I lack any sort of coordination worth mentioning I admire the grace of ballet dancers. It clearly takes much practice and perhaps some innate grace as well. I also admit that I can't put names it steps and movements but once I saw this move illustrated I knew I had seen this position many times before. Definitely a classic!
What attracts you to this ballet artwork? The lavender or violet colors? The graceful form? Perhaps you are a ballet dancer yourself or you are shopping for someone who is or aspires to be? I hope you'll share your thoughts.
The dancer illustrated on this canvas print is based off a photograph by photographer, Kenny Johnson. His work is used here under a creative commons 2.0 license. You can see the work attributed here.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
