I was raised and educated in Indiana, so I was introduced at a very young age to the Hoosier Poet, James Whitcomb Riley. He was the author of several famous children’s poems like Little Orphan Annie and the Raggedy Man. But one of my favorites was not directed toward children—When the Frost is on the Pumpkin.
As soon as the leaves begin to turn brilliant and the Midwest morning air greets me with a sharp bite, I think of the words that begin that epic poem: When the frost is on the pumpkin and the fodders in the shock. It’s only the first week of October, and I’ve already decorated my yard with pumpkins and gourds and mums. So it’s no surprise that the wonderful autumn canvases are catching my eyes.
I smiled at this image sent to us from a customer named Rebecca. She explained it. “This is Max in the pumpkin patch at Andrew’s Scenic Acres outside Toronto. It was a present for his father…and his eyes welled up when he saw it. The service was so fast, courteous and easy. The image on canvas are stunning. The customer service is amazing, and the product is excellent. I’ll be buying more.”
This next canvas that we made for Mark stopped me in my tracks. Autumn colors with snow capped mountains in the background! Now that’s not something I see in the Midwest. He snapped it one October day with an average 35mm camera. “The larger mountain in the shot is Mt. Moran and this area is called Oxbow Bend. It’s an amazingly beautiful area. The folks at Canvas on Demand were very helpful and answered all my many questions. I wasn’t sure how a regular 4×6 photo would translate to a larger canvas, but it turned out awesome! I was very pleased!” It’s a great photo, Mark, and we are thrilled that you are pleased. That’s our goal!
Sherri’s picture of fall aspens in Colorado is another spectacular example of an October shot turned to canvas. “These are some of the gorgeous fall aspen trees in Colorado. I am extremely impressed with Canvas on Demand. Your rep called me upon receipt of my order to make recommendations, and when I received the final product it looks like an oil painting! Colors are vibrant, and quality is excellent. I’m a new photographer and will absolutely send all my photos to Canvas on Demand in the future.”
This next one is such a sweet canvas! We created it for Cathy. She wrote in her testimonial: “I am a professional photographer and needed a sample to show my customers. This photo is of my granddaughter. My customers are raving about the quality of the photo on canvas. I am very pleased. Canvas on Demand is #1 on my list. The consultants were very professional and called me about the resolution on two of the photos. We made some changes that made all the difference in the finished product. Thanks to your great team!” And our great team is thankful for customers like you!
And in closing, I will simply say…I hope this year, you receive all treats and no tricks. Mom
