Art Print Notes:
There was some ineffable quality to the Little Greek Theatre at Pompeii. Although it was in ruins, there was a haunting stillness that felt as if the actors and the audience had simply stepped away for the moment. And yet at the same time, I felt the weight of the years here. It was while standing in the Little Greek Theatre that I really felt the millennia that have passed since Vesuvius buried Pompeii and its unlucky inhabitants.
The worn stones of the seats of the Little Greek Theatre spoke to countless people who wore them down before they were ever buried. Those ancient Romans must have enjoyed many hours of entertainment there. I really feel a connection with the people of ancient Pompeii when I look at this print. I can imagine them sitting there enjoying a show together. Can you see them too?
The ancient quality of this Little Greek Theatre print is what ultimately inspired the sepia-toned scene you see. I originally tried this Pompeii print in color as well as black and white and neither worked for me. There just wasn’t that same sense of ancient drama. It’s funny how much a color can influence our feelings. The color left me cold and the black and white lacked the pop of this print. And as this is one of my more popular prints from Pompeii it seems the vintage feel is as attractive to other as it is to me.
Have you stood and gazed at the seats in the Little Greek Theatre in Pompeii? Or perhaps this print speaks to you simply because of the sincere antiquity it portrays? I would enjoy it if you took a moment to let me know what speaks most to you in this Pompeii print?
Wonder what past print buyers think?

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.

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.
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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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!
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.
