Art Print Description:
When I lived in Atlanta, one of my favorite places to wander on the weekend was historic Oakland Cemetery. I know I couldn’t be alone because I rarely was when I visited. I’m sure some were visiting famous graves, and, of course, I saw Margaret Mitchell’s grave among others. But my fascination with old cemeteries started long ago. I grew up wandering through various old cemeteries to see the graves of long-dead family members and acquired a fascination with old burial grounds.
Specifically I am fascinated by Victorian era cemeteries like Oakland Cemetery which was founded in the mid 19th century. This was the era when cemeteries were designed to be park-like green spaces. Most any decent sized city of the day has at least one of these. Beyond the park, of course, there are the over-the-top monuments the Victorians loved to leave behind.
Oakland Cemetery in the spring is definitely an example of a “garden cemetery.” It’s filled with flowering trees and plants and you can definitely understand why people in that bygone era would pack a picnic and bring the family tend to their family plot on a beautiful day. Even though I had no family I knew of buried in Oakland, I enjoyed wandering the little lanes there, particularly on a nice weekend day.
The walls and gates at Oakland were built near the turn of the century in 1896 and I wanted this print of this historic corner of Atlanta to reflect that era. Hence the people dressed in period clothing seen near the gates on a spring or maybe early summer day. This print illustrates the west gate into Oakland as I imagine it may have looked around a century ago.
I’d love to hear what brought you to this particular print. Do you have family at Oakland Cemetery? Or perhaps you are, like me, simply a fan of old Victorian era graveyards? I would love if you took a moment to leave a comment about what attracted you to this particular print.
Note: Historic Oakland Cemetery is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places.

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 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.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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!
We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.
Thank you so much!!
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!
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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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 got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
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!
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.
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.
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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.

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!
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
