Art Print Description:
This art print of the old Point Loma lighthouse at night in the rain was the result of a request sometime back. And as I love old lighthouses, this one fit perfectly in my wheelhouse. I don’t do every request then and there, but I do keep a running list of subjects people have suggested and work on them as inspiration strikes. In this case, inspiration struck almost instantly as I pictured that beautiful old light at Point Loma in San Diego against a rain streaked and stormy night sky. I’ve been told more than a few times that the result is stunning and dramatic.
There’s just something about a lighthouse weathering the storm. It speaks, I think, to a primal part of us. I’ve had more than a few people comment that my lighthouse prints remind them of Christian themes. Particularly the night time prints like this one. I know I can certainly see the symbolism, how about you?
This Point Loma lighthouse print is a vivid mix of blues from the stormy clouds in the skies overhead to the blue-green of the landscape in the foreground. Even the white of the old lighthouse itself has tones of blue. That really makes the golden warm glow of the lantern up top stand out from the rest of the print. Even thought the blue is dominant, it’s the warm glow from the windows and lantern that gives this print an overall welcoming tone – a sense of warmth and safety from the blowing rains.
Old Point Loma Lighthouse is an historic landmark – part of the Cabrillo National Monument. In fact, in the local mythology of San Diego, it’s said to have been built by the Spanish. I love how every location has its tall tales that are bigger than life. In the case of the old lighthouse at Point Loma, it was constructed in the mid 19th century. So although this California light was not built by the Spanish, it definitely has an old world charm.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this historic lighthouse print? Are you from San Diego or shopping for a friend who would enjoy a San Diego print? Or perhaps you just love the symbolism of old lighthouses and this particular print speaks to you? Whatever the reason for your visit, I hope you’ll pause to share your comments.

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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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!
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.
He loved 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!

We ordered several of your pieces for hallways and a few offices at our business. Everything turned out great.
Thank you so much!!
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.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
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.
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 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!!
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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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!

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.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
