Carpe Diem - Sunrise Canvas Print
This vivid sunrise canvas print features the Latin phrase Carpe diem. This motivational phrase is often said to mean "Seize the day" but I recently read an article that said that's not the literal translation of the words. In Latin it means "plucking the day." As a metaphor, it probably means something akin to "gather ye rose buds while ye may." When we translate metaphors, we often give them a translation than attempts to convey the meaning. And "seize the day" is probably a lot more motivational than "plucking the day" isn't it?
The phrase Carpe diem is shown over a sunrise scene that is mean to suggest those first few moments of morning when the sun has yet to actually appear but the horizon is glowing with color. The night sky has not yet entirely retreated. If you're going to seize the day, you might as well get an early start.
Does the scene on this Carpe diem canvas art inspire you to make the most of your days?

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.
