Art Print Notes:
One of my favorite things as more people come to know about my work is getting requests, and one of those recent frequent requests was for an art print of the Denny Chimes.
The Denny Chimes have been a fixture on the south side of The Quad at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa for scores of UA students for decades. The idea of a towering campanille was originally dreamed up as a memorial to those lost in the first world war. But money was tight and nearly a decade passed before that dream became a reality. The bell tower was completed and dedicated in 1929. I’ve had several University of Alabama alumni tell me that when looking at this print, they can hear the carillon ring out. Isn’t it amazing the power of our senses? That the sight or smell of something can bring back sensations like hearing? In this case the sight of the landmark Denny Chimes stirs the same emotional response of hearing its bells. I love and understand that!
The art deco architecture of the Denny Chimes is really complimented by the surrounding landscape of the campus. There’s certainly a park-like setting if not the feel of an actual woodland. And there’s just something about the soaring lines of the tower piercing the canopy of the trees. It’s a beautiful combination that if I read about it, I wouldn’t expect to like, but seeing is believing and the result is harmonious.
I love painting trees with a free and organic shape, so a Denny chimes painting seems like a perfect subject for my style. I plan to do more University of Alabama art prints as time allows, but I have to say I’m thrilled with my first entry into this subject area. But as always I welcome other suggestions as well!
I would love to hear what brought you to this particular University of Alabama art print? Were you looking for the perfect gift to give a friend who’s an Alumni of the University of Alabama? Or were you looking for something for yourself to recall your own halcyon days on this beautiful and historic campus? Do please pause to share your thoughts!
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.

Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
