Foggy Streets of Galway - Irish Canvas Print
This atmospheric Irish canvas print features the foggy streets of Galway on a winter night. I love the way fog can alter our perceptions of our surroundings. The ordinary becomes surreal and unusual and a bit mysterious. Think of how many films use a foggy street at night in a mystery or horror film. There's something deep in our heart that feels as if the fog might be a gateway to another realm. I had been down this street in Galway on multiple occasions during my weeks there and it was charming but certainly felt nothing like it did in a deep fog. The fog adds interest to many a scene but in particular streets filled with classic old architecture.
The people add their own dimension to this foggy scene. And yes, there's more than one, although you would be forgiven for missing the second person wearing a hood further down the street. They add not only a sense of scale but with their features obscured yet more mystery!
This particular Galway print has always gotten a lot of attention. Not just by people familiar with Galway but those that simply love the general vibe here. How about you? I would love to know what attracts you to this foggy streets of Galway scene? Do you recognize the place or is it simply down to the mood of it for you?

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.
