About This Image:
This Amusement park print from dusk on Chicago’s Navy Pier has always attracted a good deal of attention. In fact this was one of the first prints I sold in a small gallery show in Atlanta several years ago. That first sale was one of those little special moments that got the ball rolling on my art career. It’s one thing creating artwork you enjoy. It’s another when you realize that it’s connecting with other people!
For a period of time, I had to commute to Chicago frequently for work. Although I rarely had time to really explore Chicago, there were a few rare moments where I got out to see more of that beautiful city. On the occasion pictured in this Amusement park print, I had just a little time to wander around the pier before night fell on the windy city. And to capture the lights and motions of an amusement park, I can think of no better time, eh?
This print has been described to me by some as classic Americana. It really has that epic feel of an American theme park as night falls. So much so that everyone who sees it thinks its a different park, i.e. the one they know best. I’m sure it’s because these amusement park rides seen in motion are so ubiquitous. Ferris wheels are, after all, the epitome of theme parks. And I’ve read that most of these swings, or Chair-O-Planes, are made by the same manufacturer. I guess that universal feel is something of a hallmark of Americana – a feeling that encompasses the American experience.
I know this amusement park print will long remains one of my favorites. Not simply because it was the beginning of my career as an artist but because I love the bright colors and the fluid motion. I love the feel I have when I look at it. The feeling that I’m there in the cool night air of Navy Pier in Chicago again. And, of course, I love the wide appeal of this print that everyone seems to think is from their favorite park.
Have you gazed up at the amusement park rides on Navy pier on a night in Chicago? Or does this print remind you of the classic American theme park experience? I hope you’ll share what makes this print special in your eyes!

I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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!!
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!
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.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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!
…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!
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 treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
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.
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.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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!
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
