Art Print Notes:
This Desiderata Poem print was something of an artistic challenge for me. If you wander through my collection of photos and other artwork, you won’t find much in the way of word-art or poems superimposed over photos. For me, the image itself is usually the whole story. Once in a blue moon I’ll do something with a small short quote. But as you can see this Desiderata poem print contains the entire poem, not just a word or two. So that’s what I mean by this being both a departure and a challenge.
I wanted an image that was strong but at the same time not distracting from the Desiderata poem itself. In other words, I wanted it to complement rather than distract from the words. In fact, the artwork that is the backdrop to this Desiderata poem print is inspired by some of the words in the poem. Specifically near the end Max Ehrmann’s poem states:
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
That concept of a “Child Of The Universe” was what inspired this little piece of inspirational art. There’s a very cosmic vibe to that line, that we are part of everything around us. That cosmic vibe forms the backdrop to this work. From the glowing golden light of the sun to the figure of the woman bathing in its light. There’s a sense of calm and peace that I felt made this an excellent companion to this Desiderata poem print.
In the end, this is a beautiful poem and I felt it deserved a beautiful piece of art to go along with it for those who want to frame these words and live by them in their daily lives. As this has become one of my more popular pieces of art, it appears that I have succeeded in matching the art to the audience for this Desiderata print.
This is one of those pieces of art that was requested by folks who follow my work. In this case, several had asked me to tackle this piece of inspirational art, so I’m pleased to have risen to the occasion. I always welcome suggestions and I would love to hear what you like about this particular poem print? Do take a moment to share in the comments or contact me.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!

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!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
