Art Print Description:
In some way I think many of us long for simpler times. Now, I’m the very first to acknowledge that the past is looked at through rose colored glasses. Every period in history has its challenges. When we look at the past with longing, it’s often a desire for life at a different pace or, sometimes, the people or places we miss.
This particular art print has a bit of a personal connection. This old country store in Rose Hill, Alabama, was closed when I was very little. But for me it represents the place where my father grew up. He spoke often and fondly of his childhood in rural Covington County. His mother’s grandfathers were among the early settlers of this small farming community. When he remembered life in Rose Hill, it was definitely the simpler times that appealed to him.
After sharing this piece with locals from Rose Hill, I found out the sign above the store actually came years later. When it operated, this country store was JJ Bryant’s store. It closed in 1975 and the sign was apparently added by later owners of the property. But I was never really shooting for an historical piece, this artwork was about the place my dad grew up and the place name was integral to that. It’s also about the sense of community that was once so strong in these little communities. When my father’s generation grew up here, there was a school house across from this store and the church they attended was just around the curve. This little crossroads was the center of life. Every so often, you can still stumble over a little country store that has managed to survive the changing times but not as often as you once would have.
I expected family and others from this small community to appreciate this print. What gladly surprised me was that it has broader appeal. When I first shared it, the overwhelming response was that it reminded people of carefree simpler times or to put it more succinctly, the good old days.
I hope you’ll stop to share your response to this Rose Hill print. Are you from the area? Or does it appeal to you simply from the raw sense of nostalgia it evokes?

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!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…

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.

My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
…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!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
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.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
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 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!!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
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 just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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!
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.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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 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.
