Art Print Notes:
The inspiration for this old red truck art print came from a simple desire to do something fun! I had recently shared another autumn themed print I did a few years ago that included nothing but the golden canopy of trees and a winding road. In my response to someone admiring the work, I mentioned how many architectural pieces I had done lately and how much I missed the comparative freedom of a simple landscape!
I guess you could call this old red truck art print meeting in the middle somewhat. There’s still the lines of the old red truck that aren’t quite as free as the fall colored foliage, but in its own way it was a fun subject. The lines of those vintage trucks (and cars) are simply fun! Earlier cars and trucks were boxy and inspired by their stagecoach roots. Then car manufacturers began to embrace Art deco and later Streamline Moderne styles. These cars and trucks are, to my eyes and many others, literal works of art on wheels. So, this old red truck seemed like the perfect focal point for this fun autumn artwork.
I will admit when I was mapping out this red truck art print, I actually considered other colors for the classic GMC truck. The trees were always going to be in bold hues of gold and red. I knew that from the start, and the sky, of course, was going to be a bright blue like you see on a clear fall day. The truck I toyed with a classic blue for awhile and I even looked at a gorgeous green. And while I liked each choice, red won the day. It’s almost as if the old red truck and the brilliant fall leaves are trying to outshine each other but at the same time are in a perfect harmony. I’m so glad I went with red and it’s hard to imagine this old red truck art any other way for me after completing it!
Whatever choices I made along the way, this particular print is exactly what I wanted, something that was fun to do and brings a broad smile to my face every time I look at it. And so far that seems to be the general consensus, that it’s a smile-inducing and colorful piece of art!
What say you? Does this red truck art print tick all the boxes for you, too? I’d love it if you take a moment to share your thoughts. Does it remind you of a place, a moment in time, or maybe someone special to you?
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.

…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 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.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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.

Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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 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!
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.
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 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 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 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!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
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!!
