"The One That Got Away" by Michael Blessing


The One
That Got Away

by Michael Blessing

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.

About Michael Blessing

Michael Blessing spent his formative years in rural Montana, surrounded by the land, the people, and the usual conglomeration of machinery.  After pursuing a Master's degree in Music Arts, he spent the next thirty years owning and running two recording studios and working in the music industry in the areas of performance, engineering, and recording.  

A self taught artist working in oil, Michael is primarily compelled by the shapes within a composition. Having discovered an initial inclination toward figurative painting, he favors a candid view of his subjects, often depicting unexpected everyday moments and emotions that are universally relevant.  As a rule, Michael is drawn to strong compositions, vibrant color, and bold lines.  His figurative work and paintings of vintage Western nostalgia are widely appealing and have an edgy quality that is both contemporary and timeless.
