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.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.

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.

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 treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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!

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 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!!
