"Hollow". I recently learned that the Old Abandoned Barns neighboring my childhood home in Calvert County, Maryland were torn down and cleared out for a new home being built in the Community. Saddened by the news, I wanted to paint a homage to the barns. I wanted to remember the days when my friends and I would play hide and seek, seek refuge from the rain while playing in the fields, and camp out during the summer. These are just some of the very fond memories of those barns. Although there were 4 barns on the property, I painted the largest of the bunch, The Tobacco Barn. Even though the barn is no more, I will always remember the aroma of the drying tobacco, gazing up to the eaves and seeing rows upon rows of hanging tobacco in the rafters, the creaking of the boards when the wind wafted through the walls, and the distant call from my Mother next door telling me it’s time to come inside for supper.
Custom Stretched Hand Embellished Canvas Prints Available:Multiple Sizes offered. However, if you have a particular size in mind not offered here, please contact me to custom order your desired size.
My Hand Embellished Canvas Prints of are Artist Proofs of my original Acrylic Painting and manufactured using Museum-quality poly/cotton commercial grade Archival Inks and then tightly hand-stretched on pine stretcher bars in your selected size. Using Acrylic Paint, I rework the surface with pops of color and subtle details to enhance each Proof and ensure your purchased Artwork is a One of a kind Original Custom Art Piece. Once the Print is ready, it is once again Quality Checked, Color Proofed, Signed, and Packaged with Care by me before being sent to your home or office.
Note: The .75" Depth is perfect without a frame, but if you plan on framing your Canvas Print later in a traditional or floating frame, .75" Depth is the best option. The 1.5" Depth is ideal for a clean open finish which does not require a decorative frame. This allows you to appreciate the artwork that continues and wraps around the sides of the canvas.
All of my Hand Embellished Stretched Canvases are finished with a protective semi-gloss varnish and hand signed on the front lower right corner.
The back will display the title, size, and date of completion including small paint daubs of the colors I used to embellish the particular piece. Your Canvas will arrive ready to hang, with hardware and already wired for hanging on the back.
Your stretched Canvas will come complete with an UV-protective coating so the colors will never fade (but please, still remember to keep it out of direct sunlight as all Artwork doesn't like the Sun's deteriorating UV Rays.)
Mirrored edges so you don't lose any of your image, but still wraps around the support frames. The artwork continues around the sides, and is stapled on the back.
