Art Print Description:
This scenic country art depicts a place in rural Georgia that I didn’t personally know the history of when I stumbled across it. In fact, I wasn’t even one hundred percent sure it was the Crossroads Store despite the fact it was on a road named the Crossroads Store Road. It was just a hunch.
What attracted me to this old country store was the fact it reminded me of a vanishing part of my childhood. When I was little our family road trips sent us snaking through country roads of south Alabama. At that point in time, many of these old country stores were still ongoing family businesses. Many of them my parents remembered from their own childhoods. There was always such a homey feel to them and they were often the center of small farming communities. The sort of place were customers might gather and gossip in the shade. This piece of scenic country art captures those memories from my childhood and more and more of these old places are quietly vanishing into the southern countryside.
This scenic country art print has been part of my catalog of work for years but it was only recently that I learned a little more of the story behind it from a member of the family that once owned it. Sure enough this old country store in rural Crisp County Georgia was known as the Crossroads Store. It rests on a farm that still belongs to the same family. Talk about continuity! And it once was frequented by the surrounding community, many of whom were farm workers on the same farm. The old Crossroads store was built in the 1940s and operated into the late 1960s. The life of rural communities has changed much in the latter half of the 20th century and beyond. There are simply fewer people living and working there than in the past so it’s not surprising to see old places like this to fade into the past, but I’m glad I was able to document this one before it was entirely gone from the earth!
This has a quaint country feel not to mention the beautiful south Georgia landscape. It’s a scene I found personally appealing without any actual background history. That just adds to the appeal for me. What say you? What speaks to you in this scenic country art print? Does it remind you of your childhood? Or maybe it’s the store itself you remember or have a family connection to? I would love if you pause to share what it is that speaks to you loudest in this country print?
Wonder what past print buyers think?
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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.
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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.

I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
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.
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 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 concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
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!
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!
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
…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!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
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.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
