Bodie Island Lighthouse - Rainy Night Canvas Print
This rainy night canvas print features a brilliant view of Bodie Island lighthouse in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Bodie Island Light built in 1872 is the third lighthouse on Bodie Island. It's a 170 foot tall brick lighthouse, one of only about a dozen like it remaining. It's also rare in that it's one of the few lighthouses to retain its original first order Fresnel lens.
I felt like a soaring lighthouse like the one on Bodie Island deserved a sweeping landscape scene and something with a bit of drama. Hence the stormy skies and the rain drops. The foreground is filled with marshy grasses lit in mostly pale blues. On the right hand side you see the warm glow of the window in the lighthouse keeper's quarters. And of course there's the bright light of beacon lighting the skies above.
I would love to know what first attracted you to this Bodie Island lighthouse canvas print? Do you love lighthouse art in general or did you come looking specifically for an OBX print? I hope you'll share your thoughts about my artwork.

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.
