Britain in Spring - Red Telephone Box Art Print by Mark Tisdale.
The subject of this red telephone box art print is Britain in Spring. I don't often think in series when I do my work, but a series of phone boxes through the seasons was great fun to do. My love affair with the British red phone booth goes back to a time well before I first saw one in person. To be honest, I don't remember when I first saw a picture of one but it may have been after my Uncle's trip to the UK and Europe when I was about five years old. That's my suspicion anyway.
Whatever the source by the time I saw them in person, it was not a disappointment. There's just something about the eye catching red color and the style of them that appeals to me more than may be reasonable. This Britain in Spring artwork was the first in the series and I knew instantly I wanted to see a stylized cherry tree with blossoms blowing past. I'm not sure I have a favorite in the series. Each has their own meaning for me. Spring is about renewal which the flower blossoms capture. And the red telephone box in this print, like the real thing is more solid and concrete - an observer of the passing seasons year in and year out.
This red telephone box art print was done in a square format. Great as a large statement piece on its own or as a small print used with other art in your home or to decorate a place of business. You could also consider it as a lovely keepsake for someone with a special anniversary in the spring or who has visited Britain in spring.

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 ❤️

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!
