About This Image:
Perhaps I am not impartial since I grew up in Montezuma, but this neoclassical plantation style gem is the epitome of the old south to me. I half expect a southern belle to descend the steps, don’t you? It’s truly a classic plantation style house that conjures memories of gracious southern living. Don’t you think?
While it has the look of an old plantation house and is genuinely a piece of heritage architecture, the old DeVaughn-Lewis home is not antebellum. That fact might surprise some as it certainly has the style and flair of Gone With The Wind with those four massive two story Corinthian columns. But it was in fact built circa 1906 for James E. DeVaughn and his second wife, Molly. There seems to be some confusion in articles I’ve read in regards to the age of the “House on Literary Hill.” Captain DeVaughn married Molly a full 20 years before the house was built, but the style very much reflects the time. If it were older, it would be Victorian. But Around the turn of the century there was new prosperity and people wanted to revive the look of the old south even if it was a story book look by then. There are several similar old homes in the area all built in the same period. It’s possible even that Captain DeVaughn built his new mansion when he did to keep up with the Joneses of the day.
I regret the actual home has not looked this nice most of my life. These large old south homes are incredibly expensive to maintain. Renovation of them seems to have a history of breaking the bank for many. Multiple well-meaning dreamers have in the past decades taken on the task which has yet to be completed. That was actually the inspiration behind this piece. I was tired of looking at pictures of how it looked today with worn paint and fading glory. I wanted to tackle capturing the spirit of this old southern beauty with its rich plantation style.
The result is a purposefully dreamy piece of art. This is the old south to me, gracious homes, lush green landscapes, and magical skies. This is a print that sparked the interest of locals in Montezuma, Georgia, of course. After all it’s a piece of local history and part of the home town fabric. But I’ve found it speaks to many more who love that classic look and feel of the old south. Doesn’t it make you want to curl up with some Faulkner and a mint julep? It’s a piece of art that can bring gracious living to your home whether it’s a simple condo or you live in your own plantation style home.

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!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
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!!
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 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!
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.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
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!
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 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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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.
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.
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.
