Carriage Ride - Colonial Williamsburg Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This original Colonial Williamsburg canvas print features a sunlit carriage ride. There's something about the golden light in this scene that just feels magical to me. And even though the photo this artwork is based on was taken in late summer, it has always reminded me of one of my favorite poems, "Woodland Ride" by A.E. Houseman. As a result the official title of this piece has always been Woodland Ride, a reminder to live in the moment. The text of Houseman's poem follows:

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

After reading Houseman's poem do you feel the same connection to the golden moment captured in this Colonial Williamsburg canvas print? Does it remind you a carriage ride in Williamsburg, Virginia or elsewhere? Or maybe it simply warms your heart? I hope you'll share what this canvas print says to you when you look at it and what attracted you to it?

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.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

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.
