Thank you Zori!

This is so fun! And I love the contrast in the cars. The SUV looks kind of out of place! Wonderful image! L/F!

Mark E Tisdale replied:

Thanks Meg! This is one of my more popular prints from the Atlanta area. In the original photo that this is based on, there was an SUV there so I went with it. The classic car was my nod to the age of the restaurant and the rest a nod to the years that have passed! :-)

Love your image, Mark. This is great and brings back memories. f/v

Artist's Description

There's one landmark that is known to pretty much everyone in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, and that is the Big Chicken pictured here! It started life in the 1960's as Johnny Reb's Chick, Chuck and Shake restaurant. In the 1970's it became part of the KFC chain of restaurants but it's one of those landmarks that has transcended the restaurant that occupies it. In fact there was an uproar when KFC considered moving or changing their famous restaurant several years ago. In Marietta, all directions begin with regards to where one should turn at the Big Chicken! This status meant that I knew the Big Chicken would be part of my series of Atlanta imagery when I was working on that project in earnest. This piece of digital art captures the bold colors and larger than life feeling of standing before this great piece of roadside Americana in the heart of Marietta, Georgia.

About Mark E Tisdale

Mark E Tisdale

Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple. My body of work is wide ranging from photographic scenes of far away places, more near and dear locations, and more fanciful artwork. It's all crafted with a heartfelt love for finding the beauty in little captured moments. My artwork also hangs on walls near and far from private homes to businesses who have chosen to decorate with my art. Whether you've purchased one piece or a house full or you simply admire and share with your friends, your patronage of my art is...
