Art Print Description:
Auburn has been a favorite subject for my art lately. In good part, I suspect that’s nostalgia driven. We often hit moments in life where it’s easier to live in the past than the present and even when that’s not the case, our vision of the past is often rose colored. But whether the past is picture perfect or not, my years in Auburn were definitely among my happier ones. Fledgling steps away from home and friends that I have held onto every since. And I’m sure many who have gone to Auburn University can say the same. And I say that despite not finishing the degree I was working on there. Life had other plans as it often does!
That partially explains the subject in this rainy evening artwork being an Auburn landmark, Toomer’s Corner. The rest of the inspiration was actually received in an email from someone who follows my work. She was quite taken with my depiction of Dublin in the rain from earlier this year. And she hoped I would do something similar featuring Auburn. These rainy art scenes are still rather new to me and it was a thought that honestly hadn’t crossed my mind. But once it did, I was off to the races. I knew immediately the subject would be Toomer’s Corner. Even though I’ve already done an art print featuring Toomer’s. One wasn’t enough anymore!
I’m so glad the suggestion was made! And I always welcome suggestions. I can’t say that everyone of them will be something I do the next day but I do file them all away for later. Sometimes the inspiration is immediate. Other times the ideas percolate away in some dark corner of my mind before it comes into focus. In this case, I had pretty much this scene in mind from the start. I wanted to show the street lights and buildings on Toomer’s Corner in Auburn reflecting on themselves.
For me, there’s a tranquility in these. And I’ve had more than one person comment that my rainy prints in general have a cheerful sense to them even if you might normally associate rain with being a bit down. I think for me the rain is more in the literary sense. I recall a long ago English class where the professor explained how water and rain are often used as literary devices for a turning point in the story where the protagonist washes away their old self and the story moves onward. Sure enough I’ve seen that same plot device used in films throughout the years and always think of Dr. Norton. To me this is a renewing rain. Everything is clean and new again on this little mythical corner in Auburn.
So I would love if you took a moment and shared what this Auburn art print means to you? I’ve had some on social media say it reminded them of dodging rain drops on the way to class in Auburn. And I can well remember that, too. Some who have never experienced the Loveliest Village On The Plains simply loved it for the beauty of the moment I captured. But I always love to hear what captures the attention of each individual. So do leave a comment or drop me a note!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!

I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
