Art Print Description:
I stumbled over this beautiful yellow church in the Barrio de Santa Ana on my first visit to Mérida and instantly fell in love with the beautiful shade of golden yellow as well as the unique style of this old church. Most neighborhoods in old Mexican cities are centered around historic churches. In fact the neighborhood and the church will likely share their name. In other words, the church your family attends is intimately tied to the neighborhood in which you live. It’s a very old world way of organizing life that reminds me of the descriptions of old London in which a Cockney was said to be born within earshot of the Bow Bells.
What also caught my attention was the beautiful tropical palm trees swaying in the breeze in the park that surrounded that cute yellow church. It was just such a compelling and picturesque scene with colorful architecture and palm trees. It’s a little slice of life in Mérida that really speaks of life in the Yucatán and Mexican culture. I didn’t know a thing of the history of this old neighborhood nor the church that sits in the center of it until I was back home, but I knew it was one of those colorful moments that speaks to people whether or not they’ve walked the same streets as you have.
Later I found out that this little barrio and its namesake church was once on the outskirts of Mérida. It was an area that the indigenous Maya had called home and the site of an open chapel that had served them for a century. From an ancient perspective, it’s apparently a site that was held sacred well before the Spanish Colonial period. The beautiful yellow church you see now was built in 1733 over the foundations of a Mayan temple. In fact, some speculate the unique pyramid shaped bell towers on that 18th century church are a nod to the Mayan heritage of the site.
Whatever the case, the rich colors on that old architecture and beautiful weather on my last day in Mérida came together for an incredibly picturesque piece of Mexican art. I have looked at this particular print so often since that when I had a brief stop over in Mérida again some years later, well you can guess one of the places I had to revisit!
Do the striking colors and tropical vibe of this yellow church print speak to you? Or perhaps you’ve walked on this same street in the Barrio de Santa Ana? I would love to hear what attracts you to this particular print. Please take a second to share your thoughts!

…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
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.
…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!
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.
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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!
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.
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 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.
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!
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 ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
