so I’m thinking this will look great on a light blue, light yellow, or white tee. We need to decide what, if anything, to put on the back. the web site, and something identifying Vermont as location?
I’m leaning toward another drawing, but need to photograph it in the daylight. In the meantime, I’ve been goofing around with photoshop on this one
Wow am I glad I stopped over to see the tee shirt people at Select Design. I learned quite a bit. Four color process printing, which would be the only way to capture the full and nuanced color in a painting to be used as a tee, is a bit pricey—in the $500 range for prep. And it’s not the same thing as doing the design as 4 “spot colors,” which would be charged at their $47.50 rate per color per location (on the tee).
With the spot color method, there would still be some prep charges, but if I can get a design reduced to 2 color or even 3 colors, we’d save a considerable amount. Wish I was a photo shop whizzz; Jane, the sales person I met with at Select Design does not know photo shop, but the people in their art dept can do anything we want for $75 an hour. I’ve done a cursory search on the internet for instructions on best methods with photoshop to get my photo file to good state, from what I have. I want to learn this stuff myself, but hope to not keep holding us up. I will keep plugging away at it…gotta fly now, more later!

Found out near North Hyde Park; it may have been Centerville. Just off the North Hyde Park Road, heading toward the Green River Reservoir. My travel companion didn’t want to take her new car onto the dirt roads, so we were turning around just there, and spotted the tree. I know I know, living in VT and afraid of dirt roads!
