Hello! My name is Stefanie and I am interning for artist Miriam Schulman in her studio this summer which has been a lot of fun to learn about her business and to see how her newest art is created. One exciting theme that Miriam has been working on recently is flag art. Her American flags in particular are perfect for getting in the spirit for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.

This stars and stripes all-over print tee shirt is stinking cute!
These canvases, inspired by the stars and stripes of the American flag, are mixed media pieces featuring different patterns of collage in many layers. Red, white, and blue paint is also used to create the recognizable look of the flag.
If you look closely at the layers of collage in these pieces, you will see even more colors and patterns, including bright flowers, teacups, and music notes, as well as other shapes. One piece also includes inspirational words in each star.

Perfect flag tank top for showing your American pride
In addition to her original mixed media pieces, Schulman's designs are available printed on t-shirts, tank tops, and many other items, so that you can show off your American pride in your home and wherever you go! I think that the Flag Cloth Napkins would be great for entertaining guests for a holiday barbeque, or any time you want to add some color and pride to your dinner table.

To get even more inspiration for the Fourth of July, see Miriam's Pinterest board.
