Carriage Ride - Colonial Williamsburg Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.

This original Colonial Williamsburg metal print features a sunlit carriage ride. There's something about the golden light in this scene that just feels magical to me. And even though the photo this artwork is based on was taken in late summer, it has always reminded me of one of my favorite poems, "Woodland Ride" by A.E. Houseman. As a result the official title of this piece has always been Woodland Ride, a reminder to live in the moment. The text of Houseman's poem follows:

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.


Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.


After reading Houseman's poem do you feel the same connection to the golden moment captured in this Colonial Williamsburg metal print? Does it remind you a carriage ride in Williamsburg, Virginia, or elsewhere? Or maybe it simply warms your heart? I hope you'll share what this print means to you when you look at it and what attracted you to it?

Metal Prints - Back Frame

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.

The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.

Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.

The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
