The most intriguing aspect of artist Michael Flohr's talent lies in his ability to capture the spirit of a scene and the personality of a character with palette and paint. Flohr's unique interplay of color, light and texture depict the essence of a time, a place or a thought with but a glance. In "Reflections" Flohr revisits a favorite rendezvous to say "good bye" to an old friend. After three decades of bartending at the Buena Vista in San Francisco, Fred is retiring. A flamboyant and colorful character, Fred sparkles amidst the reflection of glassware and the mirror before him. It is a reflection of a life well lived -- lending an ear, making new friends, serving up good times. Ultimately, Flohr is painting Fred's masterpiece. The Buena Vista provides the canvas. The people and experiences over the years are the colors. And each passing day is another stroke of the brush. "Reflections" celebrates a life as varied and individual as Fred himself and the people that sat across from him at the bar. The mirror image is but a symbol for looking back and looking forward with no regrets and a celebration of content resolution. "Cashing out" for the last time, Flohr captures the quiet reflection of a colorful life painted with the spirit of the people and experiences that colored Fred's 36 years of tenure at the Buena Vista. Say "good bye" to an old friend, or perhaps just "so long".
