Britain in Spring - Red Telephone Box Canvas Print
Britain in Spring - Red Telephone Box Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
The subject of this red telephone box canvas print is Britain in Spring. I don't often think in series when I do my work, but a series of phone boxes through the seasons was great fun to do. My love affair with the British red phone booth goes back to a time well before I first saw one in person. To be honest, I don't remember when I first saw a picture of one but it may have been after my Uncle's trip to the UK and Europe when I was about five years old. That's my suspicion anyway.
Whatever the source by the time I saw them in person, it was not a disappointment. There's just something about the eye catching red color and the style of them that appeals to me more than may be reasonable. This Britain in Spring artwork was the first in the series and I knew instantly I wanted to see a stylized cherry tree with blossoms blowing past. I'm not sure I have a favorite in the series. Each has their own meaning for me. Spring is about renewal which the flower blossoms capture. And the red telephone box in this print, like the real thing is more solid and concrete - an observer of the passing seasons year in and year out.
This red telephone box canvas art print was done in a square format. Great as a large statement piece on its own or as a small print used with other art in your home or to decorate a place of business. You could also consider it as a lovely keepsake for someone with a special anniversary in the spring or who has visited Britain in spring.

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.
