Art Print Description:
This artwork of snow falling on Claddagh Quay was inspired by my first visit to Galway. We arrived in the city after dark on a winter evening. Shortly after getting settled in, we headed out for dinner and as soon as we hit the streets, dust swirled through the night sky. I’ve read that snow is rare in Galway but on that one magical night, it seemed to dance through the streets. I was already considering returning to Galway. I had read good things about the area and the little I had seen was inviting, but somehow the snow sealed the deal for me.
I did return to Galway and spent two weeks of my trip in the area. I spent many days roaming along the waterfront at Claddagh Quay. Although the Eglinton Canal Basin seen here was frozen over and there was a deep winter chill in the air, I never did see snow again. But this artwork captures the feeling of that magical night. Twilight skies and snow sweeping through the winter skies with the warm glow of city lights… It’s how I will always remember Galway and Claddagh Quay in my mind’s eye.
On the opposite side of the frozen canal basin, you can see the Claddagh Church and the old Piscatorial school. These represent a little slice of life and history on Claddagh Quay. The Claddagh was once a separate village from Galway with separate schools, churches, and an identity distinct from the city on the opposite quay. Saint Mary’s Priory, the Claddagh Church, is an old Dominican church. And the Piscatorial school next door was built in the 19th century to educate the children of what was then a fishing village. The children of Claddagh quay learned to read and write and they learned the skills they would need living in a village that depended on fishing. I wonder what those long ago school children would have made of the magic of snow falling on Claddagh Quay?
Have you walked along Claddagh Quay on a winter day in Ireland? Or does this artwork remind you of the warm spirit of Galway? I hope you will take a moment to share with me what speaks to you most in this Galway art?

Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.

My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!

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!!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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 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 concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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!
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.
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.
…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!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love 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.
