Art of Surfing - California Canvas Print
This California canvas print features an image I consider an ode to the art of surfing. My first experience with watching people surf was on a day spent along the coast in California years ago. I had honestly never thought much about surfing one way or the other before that day but every since then I've enjoyed taking time to watch. I'm not sure I have the grace or the patience to try it but I love to watch!
This art of surfing canvas print is based on a photo that I took during that first experience as a surfing spectator. I was on the coast at Santa Cruz and had wandered down to the water's edge with the plans to capture a few landscapes and seascapes. When I spotted a few guys paddling out I paused to watch. There was a lot of fails on my part to photograph the swift speed of a surfer cresting the wave but it gave me a lot of images to work from later! This one hung in my cube at work for years as a sort of zen reminder of the peace I felt watching those guys working on the art of surfing on a beautiful day in California.
What attracted you to this canvas art? Are you a surfer or shopping for one? Or maybe you call Santa Cruz home and this scene captures a little local flavor?

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.
