Blank Canvas

Well, I'm about to do a little braggin'. Get ready and settle in. My Hubs, a.k.a the very talented artist Michael Flohr just got back home from a whirlwind show schedule. He had a remarkable show here in San Diego this past weekend and then two days later flew to Breckenridge, Colorado for another very successful show. (Enter the bragging). Whilst at the Breck gallery, he set up a half-painted canvas to be completed by the end of the two day show. He finished it faster than he had anticipated. It sold. So the next day he set up a blank 16x20 white canvas on his easel. He turned around after setting up his palette and there was a red dot placed upon it. Red dots in the art world mean SOLD. We are all about the red dot.

So Michael Flohr sold a painting before paint ever touched the canvas.
For approx. $8500.


Way to go honey, I'm so proud of you and your amazing talent.
I am also certain that I am not the only one who feels this way.

That is so wonderful! What a simple expression of an exceedingly complex compliment to his unmistakable talent.

I've also been meaning to tell you - we were flying to Steamboat earlier this year and on the cover of the airplane magazine was a painting by your husband. I knew immediately I recognized the style - it was so cool to see his art in such an unexpected place!
