Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse - Maine Canvas Print
This Maine canvas print features the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse against a starry night sky. The mid 19th century lighthouse is on the national register of historic places and stands within the Acadia National Park. This beautiful coastal lighthouse has appeared on postage stamps (2016) and on an America the Beautiful quarter in 2012. Surely part of the appeal is that beautifully rugged Maine coastline?
Although I love lighthouses day or night, there's something magical about a lighthouse against a night sky and when I started work on this scenic view of Bass Harbor Head light, I could only picture it beneath a starry night sky with the landscape revealed in hues of blue light by a full moon. I wanted to use the moonlight to pick out the detail of the rocks and the water. And of course it helps light the facade of the lighthouse and cottage.
I would love to know what bring you to this particular Maine art canvas? Were you looking specifically for a print of this lighthouse? Or are you also a lighthouse lover and it's the overall scene that captured your eye? I hope you'll 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.
