About This Image:
When I first conceived the scene illustrated in this Paris Romance artwork, it was a play on an old movie title, Last Tango in Paris. In my mind, this couple is enjoying one last romantic night beneath the stars in Paris. But I have to admit that I really had no concept about the plot of the risque-for-its-time Bernardo Bertolucci film. So, there’s really no connection beyond I thought the title had a fun ring to it and fit perfectly with the carefree abandon of this romantic couple in what is unmistakably Paris after dark.
The research for this Paris Romance print took a bit more work than usual. The Eiffel Tower standing against the night sky was the only easy part of this composition. This shows an actual place in Paris the Pont de Bir-Hakeim. I stumbled over this spot in the middle of the Seine on one of my last days in Paris years ago. I loved this perspective of that gorgeous piece of Parisian architecture. I was not there at night but it’s not hard to imagine the Eiffel Tower aglow against the night sky is it?
So if the location didn’t take research, what did? I realized I knew only the most superficial information about the Tango! I’ve seen people dance the Tango, but never really paid attention to the moves nor even knew what to call them. I had a vague idea that I wanted my Paris romance to illustrate a couple in an embrace but not how. Now, I suppose, I could have just winged it, but I wanted this aspect to have some authenticity to it, so I spent a lot of time reading articles online and watching videos of dancers doing the Argentine Tango. Who knew the complexity behind this dance! I can hardly call this particular research work. It was a lot of fun! And while I’m still no expert, I decided on a variation of a leg wrap or enganche that could give some life to this scene and complement the graceful lines of the Eiffel Tower.
It took me longer to complete this piece than much of my work, not just because of the research involved. As you can see there’s a lot of detail and I also had to keep putting down my work and dealing with real life issues on the home front. But somehow the vision for how I wanted this to look in the end never wavered and when I finally saw the finished piece, it held all the emotions I wanted it to. There’s a feeling of spontaneity as if we’ve just caught this couple in a moment and there is a real sense of a Paris Romance playing out here. The romance is not just the couple’s love for one another but is part and parcel of the starry night in Paris. Can’t you feel the magic?
Does it remind you of your own night in Paris with a loved one? Or maybe you’re a fan of the Tango and that’s how you found your way here? Whatever the case, I would love to hear how this particular artwork speaks to you! So please stop and share your thoughts with me.

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!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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!!
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.
…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.
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.
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!
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 framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
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!
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.

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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!
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 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.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
