Open Window At Night - Williamsburg Canvas Print
This Williamsburg canvas print features the warm light from an open window at night with a lady almost in silhouette gazing out. Her old fashioned clothes are explained by this being based on a photo from a long ago visit to Colonial Williamsburg. It really does feel as if this scene could be from the distant past with the warm lantern light doesn't it?
This particularly canvas print has always reminded me of my grandmother. When I look at it I remember her recalling a memory of her grandmother who commented on the many hours she had sat by a particular window waiting for her children when she was expecting them. I'm sure many parents can identify with that feeling of anticipation perhaps tinged with some slight worry! I suspect most of that time waiting for visitors was in the daytime in their rural location but there is still something about this open window scene that reminds me of my grandmother's sweet memory.
What does this open window at night artwork remind you of? What attracted you to this particular image? For me, aside from the memories it stirs, I love the combination of cool blues and warm hues. The warm light is simply comforting and I love blue! How about 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.
