Art Print Notes:
Although it’s quite new, this Fox Theatre art print may be my favorite of this Atlanta venue. And if you wander through my Atlanta artwork, you’ll see that the old Fox is a subject near and dear to me.
And I love my other Fox Theatre prints like a mother with many children loves them all. They each have their own special qualities, but this one showing a rainy night on Peachtree street just takes it to another level for me. I find something refreshing in the rain. It’s not just the colorful reflections from the wet streets and city sidewalks. Although that doesn’t hurt! It’s the rain itself. I remember years ago in high school literature learning that water in general and rain specifically was often a plot device in stories. There would often be a turning point in the story where the lead character was wet, perhaps in a rain shower. And it represented a cleansing moment, a washing away of old sins, a new start if you will. I think that imagery has stuck with me all these years. It is a plot device you’ll find both in literature and on the screen if you pay attention.
Of course, unless you live in a desert, life is filled with rainy days. I guess they aren’t always cathartic, but it’s still a powerful image with me and if you look at my recent work, it’s been seeping into it periodically. I really enjoy doing rainy artwork like this Atlanta Fox Theatre scene print. They are simply fun to do. The details in the reflections take thought to figure out what one would see reflecting from a given angle. There’s a beautiful symmetry in a wet city street as you can tell from this Fox Theatre print. There’s simply something unique I feel in this rainy Atlanta artwork that stands above the rest.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this rainy scene from Peacthree Street. I suspect if you’ve found your way here, you also have memories of performances at the historic Fox Theatre in Atlanta? Does this remind you of a night with someone special? Please do pause to share your story!
Note: The Fox Theatre in Atlanta is on the US National Register of Historic Places.

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.

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!
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.

My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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 just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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 prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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.
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!
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.
