Colonial Gunpowder Magazine - Williamsburg Canvas Print
This Williamsburg canvas print features the historic 1715 Colonial Gunpowder Magazine. This is an original building and was the location of the famous 1775 Gunpowder incident near the outset of the American Revolution. The Royal Governor of the colony of Virginia ordered the seizure of the gunpowder held there which started local unrest and the mustering of militia throughout the colony. So not only is this building centuries old, it's the setting for American history you likely learned in school, kids!
The image itself was taken in the warm glow of the evening sun on a late summer day. The skies, I think, have a taste of fall color to them but personally what catches my eyes the most is the warm glow on those old bricks and the defensive cheval de frise in the foreground. A beautiful contrast to the cool blue sky and green of the landscape.

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.
