About This Image:
I truly love featuring historic places like Key West’s Sloppy Joe’s Bar. For those not familiar with the history of Key West, this was a haunt of Ernest Hemingway himself. The present bar on Duval Street and the original on Green Street were both owned by one of Hemingway’s friends, Joe Russell. In fact, it’s said that Hemingway was the one who encouraged Russell to name it Sloppy Joe’s Bar after another bar in Cuba. By virtue of its association with Hemingway, the bar is on the US National register of historic places. The building dates to 1917, but Sloppy Joe’s Bar opened at this location in 1937. Hemingway, already a regular, would frequent the bar with his friends (other writers and artists) throughout the remainder of his life.
This little corner of historic Key West, Florida, has gone on to become a landmark throughout the passing years. And I felt like one of my rain-soaked, colorful prints was a perfect way to celebrate this beautiful piece of Key West life today. Storm blue skies outline the cityscape complete with palm trees. And of course, the bright lights of the bar reflect in the watery street. There’s really a sense of the vibrant life of Key West in this artwork, I think. And on the corner is a couple lost in a kiss. I enjoyed working on all the little details in this print from the signs over the entrance to their reflections and the building surrounding 201 Duval Street. the intention was for you to almost hear the rain drops pattering into the street on this particular evening in the Florida Keys.
I’ve had several people suggest this particular Key West landmark to me and I’m thrilled with the outcome of this effort. I think this could be a beautiful memento of a fun trip to the Florida Keys whether you’re buying it for yourself or for someone who loves the location. I do hope you’ll take a moment to share your thoughts about this Sloppy Joe’s Bar artwork. Does it remind you of a particular night you spent there? Or perhaps you just want to discuss the mood of the setting as presented?

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
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!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.

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 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.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
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.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
…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 just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
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 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!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
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!
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.
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!
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 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.
