St. George Island Lighthouse - Florida Greeting Card
Ships within: 2 to 4 business days
This Florida greeting card features the beautiful St. George Island Lighthouse which stands today in a park in the center of St. George Island. Lighthouses on the island date back to 1833 when the first of three lighthouses was built. The second light was built in 1848 after its predecessor was damaged in storms. It was only a few years later when that light was flattened by a hurricane which required the construction of a third light. It was completed in 1852 and stood for 153 years before ultimately collapsing in 2005 after a couple of rounds of hurricane damage by Andrew and Opal. If you're unfamiliar with the history of St. George Island, you may be wondering why I said this lighthouse stands today? It was reconstructed in its new location using as much salvaged brick as possible from the original lighthouse. Similarly the keeper's cottage is a reconstruction based on blueprints from the original. So it should be clear that the St. George Island light, or Cape St. George Light, is a well loved landmark for people visiting this island near Apalachicola, Florida.
The subject for the lighthouse art on this card was suggested to me by someone who loves visiting St. George Island. I'd love to hear if you are also a regular visitor? Or if you just love lighthouse in general, what caught your eye about the image on this St. George Island lighthouse greeting card?

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!

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.
