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 was very honored and excited when Deb Barnes, then president of the Cat Writers Association, contacted me at the end of March 2020 with a very special commission, to create the artwork for the thank you note that would be given by the organization to the many sponsors, donors and others who helped their annual conference be a success. That painting is Mimi in the Formal Garden, which won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse™ Medallion in last year’s CWA Communications Contest.

I was possibly more honored and excited when, in September, as immediate past president, she again contacted me for artwork for a thinking of you, get well, all-purpose greeting card to be used by CWA for correspondence with members.

I have always had a windowbox at my dining room window, and for most years I had geraniums in that box until the shade became too dense. I had plenty of photos, and red was one of the colors we wanted. Also, years ago, I had grown morning glories around that window, and while they never looked like this, that was my aspiration, plus I’ve got plenty of photos of morning glories since I photograph them wherever I see them.

You can read more about this painting in the product post.

I am honored
