Art Print Notes:
Georgia’s historic coast is home to some magical destinations as this St. Simons Island Artwork can demonstrate. The old lighthouse on St. Simons Island is not only historic, it’s a beautiful sight to see rising over the tree canopy. The current St. Simons Island Light was completed in 1872. It was built to replace a previous lighthouse that was destroyed during the American civil war. Now, after more than a century, the old light is rumored to have ghosts that go bump in the night. But those stories certainly it don’t stop the island and the grounds of the old light itself from being a popular wedding destination.
I don’t know if it holds true historically but certainly in modern times, there’s simply something romantic in our culture about lighthouses. People flock to tour these old lights. The lights are more than simple navigational aids. They seem to exist beyond simple towers as a beacon of warmth in the darkness – shelter from the storm of sorts. And that was the feel I was going for with this St. Simons Island artwork. The lighthouse is standing against a stormy sky with drops of rain falling through the night sky. And there stands the beautiful old light as a warm beacon. There’s so much blue in the darkness that you would almost expect this artwork to be cold, but the glow from the light itself and the windows of the tower leave me with a warm feeling and I’ve heard much the same from others.
I think the result is quite the same whether you’re searching for the perfect St. Simons Island artwork or you simply have a fondness for beautiful old lighthouses. Either way there’s a romantic sense of safety and warmth in the storm that appeals to all. Or certainly all who have a strong fondness for old lighthouses. Is that you, too?
I would love for you to stop and share your thoughts about this St. Simons Island artwork. And what brought you here? Are you looking for the perfect wedding gift for a couple getting married there? Or perhaps it’s a simple love for the symbolism of lighthouses?
Note: St Simons Lighthouse is on the US National Register of Historic Places.

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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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 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!
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 print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
