Art Print Notes:
There are some places that simply capture the imagination in a short time. I had less than a day in Puebla, Mexico. It was mainly an overnight stop between Mexico City and Oaxaca, but after only a few moments wandering the Spanish Colonial streets of Puebla, I wished for more time. Puebla is golden in my memories, but the colors were as varied and as vibrant as you can imagine. Puebla seemed to be undergoing a little bit of a renaissance. On every street, I saw old Spanish Colonial architecture with fresh stucco and vivid paint. It was a bit of an artist’s paradise. Every vista seemed to have something to offer from rustic streets to the fresh and new.
When I spotted this particular piece of Spanish Colonial style architecture I was just floored by the sight. It wasn’t just the vivid golden color, either. Although the color helped, it was the scale of the architecture. Those windows are immense! The lady in traditional dress in this picture really illustrates just how large it was. It’s not just that the windows themselves are large, look at the framing around them. It really makes a statement! I also loved the asymmetrical layout which clearly paid more attention to the inside of this old home than how it looked from the street. There was clearly no thoughts of uniformity when this beautiful stucco building was erected. The result is, I think, simply charming and eclectic. Of course I think charming and the eclectic are virtually synonyms.
Puebla was actually a city rich in architectural styles from solid and relatively plain Spanish Colonial homes to the baroque and art deco. It was clearly not a city stuck in the past, but it was the really old buildings that seemed to resonate with me. They certainly make for timeless prints of Mexico that could have been taken yesterday or decades ago, instantly classic.
Have you had the pleasure of wandering the streets of Puebla yourself? Or do the vibrant colors and classic appeal of this Mexican print speak to you and you’ve never been? I hope you will spend a little time sharing what speaks to you most about this Puebla print!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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.

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 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!!
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 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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
