Art Print Notes:
Can you imagine anything more classically New England than this historic Salem print? The beautiful red Georgian house doesn’t just have that New England feel, it has a genuine pedigree as the Nathaniel Hawthorne birthplace. Hard to get more New England than that, eh?
I stumbled over this beautiful red house bathed in golden winter sunlight on what I gather was a very atypical day in Salem in the midst of winter. The sun was out and the locals were practically in shirt sleeves! It was still cool and damp, but the sun was really out and the snow was entirely washed away by recent rains. It almost feels like early spring with the light so bright and beautiful.
This is the sort of scene that would have interested me no matter what. Classical and colorful Georgian architecture mixed with beautiful light, what’s not to like? It was only after that I stopped to admire it that I discovered this house was the birthplace of a great American literary figure, Nathaniel Hawthorne! The house was built in the early 18th century and purchased by Hawthorne’s grandfather in 1772. Harthorne was born there in 1804 and lived there until he was four years old. The Hawthorne birthplace was moved to is current location to preserve it in the 1950’s.
I think it’s cool that the home both feels like an everyday piece of New England architecture and at the same time is connected so firmly to our common American history. It feels somehow right that a place so prototypically New England in nature would also be the birthplace of one of our great New England authors.
Have you stood outside the Hawthorne birthplace yourself? Perhaps you love his work? Or simply this beautiful historic Salem print speaks to you? I’d love to hear what captures your imagination in this print.
Note: The Hawthorne Birthplace is part of the Derby Street Historic District.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
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 was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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 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!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love 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!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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.
