Nubble Light - Winter Night Canvas Print
This winter night canvas print features the legendary Nubble Light surrounded by snow. Nubble Light is more appropriately Cape Neddick Light Station. Its construction was completed in 1879. It's come to be known as Nubble Light because the rocky island where it's built off Cape Neddick is known as The Nubble. If this feels like the quintessential lighthouse to you, you would not be alone in feeling that. Nubble Light is likely the most photographed lighthouse in the world. Words like quaint definitely come to mind looking at the gingerbread keeper's house. The enclosed walkway between the house and light was built in 1911 and has an almost organic feel to it as it conforms to the landscape. I bet it was a welcome addition on a cold winter night such as the one pictured here, though!
Aside from the legendary status of this light what caught my attention was the red hue to the light. Very distinctive. Apparently the tower was also originally painted a dark red but has been white since 1902. The red glow is shown here not just in the sky above the island but reflected in the water off Cape Neddick, Maine.
I love lighthouses as a subject so it was a treat tackling such an iconic one. Lighthouses have a majesty regardless of the weather but I really wanted to go for a wintry night scene simply for the novelty of it. I think the result is striking. What captures your attention in this lighthouse art? Does it remind you of a winter visit to Cape Neddick? I hope you'll share what attracts you to this Nubble Light 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.
