Art Print Description:
I love historic old architecture. The craftsmanship of these old buildings and how they are adapted to the places they are built always fascinates me. So, I have to admit when I stood on this corner across from the old Templo y Convento de San Agustín in Oaxaca, my first thought was was wishing I had an unobscured view of the old church. It was a momentary thought, though because as I surveyed the scene before me, I quickly realized just what a beautiful view of Mexican culture was before me. From the brightly colored piñata to the market and the historic church beyond, it was Mexico in a microcosm.
I visited Oaxaca for a couple of days between Christmas and King’s Day (or the Epiphany), a festive period which explains the colorful and large piñata. There were, in fact, piñatas all over Oaxaca, hanging over all the intersections of the historic city core. It was definitely an interesting taste of Mexican culture seeing the celebration of the Christmas season as well as New Year’s Eve. But the market and the church in this print are an essentially eternal view of Mexican Culture. Every city I’ve visited so far had various markets that met on various days of the week. And it wasn’t uncommon for them to be in the plaza adjacent to an old church. The neighborhoods of so many old Mexican cities are laid out around one church or another. It’s not uncommon for the neighborhood and the church to share their names.
I’m not sure if that was the case for this little barrio in Oaxaca or not, but the old church beyond it has a long history dating back to the 16th century when it was built as a church and convent for the followers of Saint Augustine. The convent has closed down and the historic church and its convent now belong to an orphanage. It’s a beautiful old Spanish baroque church that’s very much shaped by the local environment. Note the absence of towers or domes. The area is prone to earthquakes and the old convent was built without those vulnerable structures.
I’m so glad I let that first thought fly from my mind. The architecture of the old church is compelling no doubt, but no less compelling than the people that live on the streets around it. This little slice of Mexican Culture in the end is an artwork I find more compelling for the sense of life in Mexico than simply the stonework could ever be.
Have you visited the markets in Oaxaca? Perhaps stood across from this very church? Or maybe you simply love the vibrant sense of life capture in this Mexican Culture art print? I hope you might take a moment to share what captures your attention most in this Mexican print?
Note: Much of the historic core of Oaxaca is part of a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site due to the wealth of well preserved Spanish colonial architecture there.

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