Fife and Drum Corps - Colonial America Canvas Print
This Colonial America canvas print features a classic Fife and Drum Corps. This scene is based on a photo from my visit to Williamsburg, Virginia, some years ago. Colonial Williamsburg makes a wonderful backdrop for historic scenes like this. From the original buildings to the faithfully reconstructed ones, it truly is like stepping back in time and a great experience for any armchair or actual historians. I fall into the armchair camp. My visit to Williamsburg turned out to be the highlight of my trip to see where my immigrant ancestors landed at Jamestowne.
This Fife and Drum corps artwork is a beautiful mix of colors. From the soft backdrop of the houses and shops to the bright red of their coats. The red really pops doesn't it? And this Colonial America scene gives a feel for life long ago when the USA was still yet-to-be.
What catches your eye in this Colonial Williamsburg scene? Have you visited? Or do you simply love history? Perhaps you are a fan of historical re-enactment? I would love to know what attracts you to this particular canvas print?

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.
