Red Fisherman's Cottage - Salem Massachusetts Canvas Print
This Salem Massachusetts canvas print features a little red Fisherman's cottage near the water. This is based on a photo from a trip to the Boston area years ago. And actually, I'm honestly not sure what this little building was. If you glance to the background at the upper right, you'll see the masts of boats in a nearby marina. I wondered if this little "cottage" was an old marina office but what I appreciated most was its cozy size and the brilliant pop of red paint. On a sunny winter day, this building really caught my eye and warmed my heart.
The idea that the structure see in this print is an old fisherman's cottage is obviously just a story I imagined and attached to the building, but isn't it easy to imagine in Salem, a town that was once home to an industrious community of folks who depended on the sea for their livelihood? Whatever the real story, I can see that imaginary fisherman coming home to his family in this cozy cottage near the sea in Salem.

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.
