About This Image

1956 Chevy Bel Air – Classic Car Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

This classic car canvas print features a two tone blue 1956 Chevy Bel Air. It’s depicted on the streets of a city at night with a colorful cast of colors reflecting on the metal and glass of that classic Chevrolet.

I’m perhaps not a traditional fan of classic cars. I don’t know the ins and outs of their motors, etc. But I do love the style of those classics – you can see the dawning jet age in all those details can’t you! The design of these classic cars were artwork unto themselves.

Today’s cars by comparison all look so much alike. There’s some irony in that. The Classic Chevy and its brethren were inspired by the dawn of the jet age. Everything looked sleek and aerodynamic. Today’s cars have been wind tunnel tested and designed for maximum efficiency and that pretty much makes them all look the same. Aerodynamics doesn’t care if you’re a Chevy or a Ford!

And I have a personal fondness for classic Chevy cars. I grew up hearing about them from my Mom whose father, who owned a string of Chevy cars during his lifetime – he spent 46 years as a rural mail carrier and traded cars every two years. So, I look at these classic 1950’s cars and remember the stories I heard about my Mom’s childhood.

I’m sure many of you out there looking at this Chevy canvas print have your own sentimental connections to them, don’t you? What is it that brought you to this particular piece of classic car art? Did you once own a 1956 Chevy? Maybe it’s because it’s connected with a significant year in your life? Or do you just love classic cars in general and want to surround yourself with them? I hope you’ll pause a moment to share your story and thoughts on this 1956 Chevy Bel Air 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 5 to 7 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.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
