Bodie Island Lighthouse - Rainy Night Greeting Card
Ships within: 2 to 4 business days
This rainy night greeting card features a brilliant view of Bodie Island lighthouse in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Bodie Island Light built in 1872 is the third lighthouse on Bodie Island. It's a 170 foot tall brick lighthouse, one of only about a dozen like it remaining. It's also rare in that it's one of the few lighthouses to retain its original first order Fresnel lens.
I felt like a soaring lighthouse like the one on Bodie Island deserved a sweeping landscape scene and something with a bit of drama. Hence the stormy skies and the rain drops. The foreground is filled with marshy grasses lit in mostly pale blues. On the right hand side you see the warm glow of the window in the lighthouse keeper's quarters. And of course there's the bright light of beacon lighting the skies above.
I would love to know what first attracted you to the image on this Bodie Island lighthouse greeting card? Do you love lighthouse art in general or did you come looking specifically for an OBX image? I hope you'll share your thoughts about my artwork.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!

How Can I Help?
It's important to me that you know you're dealing with a person rather than some large corporation. I'm Mark Tisdale and I've worked as an artist for over 15 years now. The bulk of that time selling my work on prints and other products has been a full-time job I love. Not only does your purchase keep the lights on in my world, it simply matters to me that you are a happy customer. In the spirt of the golden rule, I want for you what I want for myself when I purchase online. And at the end of the day, I hope you may purchase from me again in the future or refer me to your friends and family.
With that in mind, if there are any questions I can answer before you purchase, please contact me so that I can assist.
And yes, the same person whose art you are considering buying is the one answering emails and tracking your order after it ships. So if your order goes awry or arrives in a less than satisfactory condition, without a doubt I want and need to hear from you.
And as an artist if you like my style but don't see the specific subject you were hoping to find today, please do tell me what it is you're seeking.
