Art Print Notes:
This particular piece of rustic farmhouse art has a small special detail that makes it incredibly sentimental to me. The figure in the doorway is intended to be my grandmother. Among the stacks of old family photos is one my grandfather took of his baby son being held on the steps of their home om 1937. The subject of the photo wasn’t my grandmother at all, but there she is, just barely visible through the screen door. I’m sure she was hovering there to keep a watchful eye on her new bundle of joy. For some reason, that visual has always had an impact on me. Every time I saw that photo, my eyes went back to my grandmother. It’s been many years since I first saw that old snapshot from their home in the rural Dixie Community in south Alabama. But I never expected it would inspire part of my own later work.
This cute little cottage is based on a local house here in Montezuma, Georgia, pretty far from where my grandparents called home. The actual building is about one big storm away from being a memory, but there was something about the simple vernacular architecture of that country cottage that just talked to me. I can’t explain why but I often look at old run down houses and my imagination runs away. And although it looks nothing like the rustic farmhouse my grandmother long ago called home, somehow the two collided.
And I love the end result of that fusion. On top of the bright colors, there’s such a profound sense of home and warmth when I look back at this. It feels like going home. I don’t know a more eloquent way to describe it.
I would love to hear what story this rustic farmhouse art print tells you? Do you just love the cottage vibe of that old home? Or does the figure in the doorway remind you of someone special in your life? I hope you’ll take a moment to pause and share your thoughts about this print and what makes it special for you!
Wonder what past print buyers think?

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 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!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
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.
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 treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
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 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!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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.
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!
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.
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!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
