Artist: Michael Blessing Title: The One That Got Away Size: 21" w x 28" h. and 37"w x 36" h. Edition Size: Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition to 50/25 with COA Medium: Giclee on Canvas. About the Art: Thousands of years ago the very glaciers that carved the knife ridges and sharp craggy peaks in Glacier National Park pushed their way down the Flathead Valley of Montana, and when they retreated, they left behind quite a gift. Flathead Lake is a sprawling blue jewel at the base of the Swan and Mission ranges. It covers nearly 200 square miles, and provides over 160 miles of picturesque shoreline, perfect for catching lake trout.
As the sun sinks below the horizon after a day spent on the water, the warm neon glow of the Rainbow Bar on Highway 35 in Kalispell, Montana, one of the longest standing establishments in the Flathead Valley, beckons thirsty fisherman to gather round over a pint or two and swap tall tales about the big one that got away.
Vintage neon signage is alive and well with Michael Blessing’s The One That Got Away. His fascination with recapturing the history of this disappearing medium of commercial art comes from his roots in mid last century Americana when main streets were aglow with the bright colors of neon. A native Montanan, he strives to preserve the retro appeal of these iconic signs in paint in hopes that the stories that accompany these images will continue to be told.
