The image above is temporary until weather permits better photos, so please excuse the quality.

Flags are printed on mid-weight cotton with a light fabric transfer finished with a “hot peel”, which means I peel the backing off of it within seconds of opening the heat press, leaving minimal plastic coating on the fabric. Because the transfer is intended for light fabric it covers the fabric well and holds the art well, but doesn’t coat the fabric with vinyl the way the opaque transfer does. It leaves a little bit of body but no real stiffness, and only occasionally curls in rain or cold weather.

The flags are printed on only one side. Though I can’t print on both sides, you can see the design really well from the back anytime during daylight.

I typically stock all garden flags, though I only print smaller quantities, usually no more than six at a time. If you’d like a quantity of flags, or a custom flag, please send me an email.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

I’d always wanted to paint this photo of my orange boy, Allegro. I took the photo in 1993 or 1994 and painted it in 2017, and it was on my mind all that time.

I wanted not so much to paint a portrait of Allegro as I wanted to capture that moment that was so much Allegro in his quiet, understated self, having wandered around and found a warm spot in the sun, decided to drop everything and enjoy the sun while it lasted. He sat down between the window and the plant on a cold late winter afternoon and had a nap. I worked it loosely with lots of extra colors to capture the feeling of streaming sunlight. I initially cropped it much tighter, focusing on him, but then I lost the light, the reflections on the window, the sun on the plant, and all the things in addition to Allegro that I loved about the scene.
