Crossroads Store - Scenic Country Canvas Print
This scenic country canvas print features the Crossroads Store, a little corner of Crisp County that I stumbled upon one afternoon years ago. At the time I guessed it was the Crossroads Store based on the name of the dirt road seen here. But years later I was contacted by someone who recognized the location and filled me in on the history.
The Crossroads Store was built in the 1940's and served nearby families into the late 1960's. Many of those patrons were farm workers on the farm where the store was located. And it still belongs to the same family all these years later. Amazing isn't it?
Finding out more about the history of this country store was pretty neat, and this piece of scenic country art still speaks to me about another time and place. There are still a few of these places still in business but not nearly as many as there once was.

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.
