Art Print Notes:
My main reason for venturing out of Rome during my short time in Italy was my fervent desire to see Pompeii. The ancient ruins of this Roman town had long ago captured my imagination. The story of Pompeii is a weird mixture of tragedy and the opportunity to examine a long lost culture. That the city was long ago covered in the ash of Mount Vesuvius is deeply sad. Imagine all the people walking these streets that day. And they had no idea they would never see another sunrise or sunset. Yet the armchair archaeologist in me is fascinated by the treasures of Pompeii. It’s very much an ancient Roman city encased in amber. Centuries later they are still digging at Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum. Tragedy turned Pompeii into a gateway to the distant pass.
In my mind, this Pompeii print has always symbolized that gateway to the past. I’ll never forget standing on that ancient cobblestone street, the Via di Mercurio, and gazing at the distant mountains. I believe those are the Monti Lattari. The amazing skies over the mountains combined with the triumphal arch ahead made me feel as if I was looking at a portal to another world. Or perhaps a portal to another time.
Visiting the ancient ruins of Pompeii was an amazing and beautiful experience. It was impossible for me to separate the tragedy from the place but I was in equal part awestruck by the opportunity to see the city streets of a Roman City. Not a modern city that has ancient wonders but a place that is more or less as it was when the ancient Romans lived and breathed and loved on these streets.
Have you visited Pompeii? Does this print remind you fondly of your experience there? Or is Pompeii still a distant dream? Whatever the case, I would love for you to take a second to share your thoughts on your favorite aspect of this ancient Pompeii print!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.

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.
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 Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
