Almost Home - Walking By Moonlight Canvas Print
This walking by moonlight canvas print is titled "Almost Home." This work was actually done based on a reference image for an art contest that showed a road in Britain in the daytime. There was no moon but when I saw the empty sky and bare winter tree limbs crossing it, this moonlit scene with a night sky is what came to my mind. When I look at this I'm reminded of moonlit walks and the bracing air of cool winter nights. Oddly the one that comes to mind specifically is of a night in Ireland years back walking with fellow travelers to a nearby pub. The moon seemed so large in the dark winter night's sky. It felt honestly larger than I've depicted in this artwork.
There was a crowd of us that night but in my scene, as you can see I've pared it down to a couple walking along a dark road with their dog. Lit mainly by moonlight they are almost in shadows. At the end of the wall you can see a glowing that suggests their destination is near at hand. Home? Or maybe I should have titled it "Almost at the Pub?" Ha!
What attracts you to this walking by moonlight canvas print? Does it remind you of a night with someone special? Or perhaps you just love the story it tells? I hope you'll take a moment to share your thoughts.

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.
