Art Print Notes:
I will never forget my ascent to the top of Saint Peter’s during my trip to Rome. There was an enthusiastic electricity in the air of the crowd I climbed with. Each cramped step inside the dome was filled with huffing, puffing, and laughter. Few of us spoke the same language, but we were united in our excitement as well as our tired feet! And when we at last burst out onto the top of the dome, the aerial view of Saint Peter’s Square below as simply breath-taking! The famous square and the city of Rome literally spread out before us like a miniature model in a museum.
Saint Peter’s Square – or Piazza San Pietro – is an amazing view from above. The baroque square was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in the 17th century some decades after the completion of the basilica. The large colonnades encircling the square are meant to represent the open arms of the church while providing a clearly defined space for large gatherings such as Papal audiences and masses. Today the amazing piazza in this print, Saint Peter’s Square, is one of those iconic places you’ve likely seen on TV whether or not you’ve ever been to the Vatican in person.
This print of Saint Peter’s Square still takes me back to that afternoon so many years ago. Whenever I look at this image, I am back there again looking down on the architecture of the Vatican and Rome. The black and white presentation really draws the eyes to the distinct lines of the colonnades and the surrounding Italian cityscape. It has an almost graphic feel doesn’t it?
Have you looked down into Saint Peter’s Square from the roof above or perhaps been down there in the midst of that baroque piazza? Or perhaps you simply love this aerial print of the Vatican and Rome? I hope you might take a second to share your favorite aspect of this black and white print!

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 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’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.
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!!
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 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!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
