Whiskey Before Breakfast
by Michael Blessing

Lord protect us, Saints preserve us, We been drinkin’ Whiskey ‘fore breakfast

Coins weren’t actually minted near The Mint Bar, but many were in play during the heyday of gambling in the rear of the bar, in downtown Sheridan.  Cowboys and girls had been known to duck under the front door on horseback. Teddy Roosevelt wrote of the “mad antics” he witnessed at the Mint.  Certainly, the chords and lyrics of the iconic fiddle tune have been played time and again in this classic Western destination.

Michael Blessing’s Whiskey Before Breakfast reveals a great deal about his concept of the Neon West. It is as much a state of mind as it is a visual record of its streets and history. With Neon Gunslingers he takes western icons into the Pop Art realm of rarified gasses and with Whiskey Before Breakfast we see the rarified gas origins of Pop Art on the western landscape.

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.
