“Across the Board” depicts a scene from the renowned Del Mar Racetrack in California. Many years ago, legendary celebrity Bing Crosby was at the gate to greet the fans when the track originally opened in 1937. In the 40’s Del Mar Racetrack was considered a summer playground for many Hollywood stars. Today, it remains one of the premier horse racing tracks in the country.
Michael Flohr, who grew up in southern California, has many childhood memories of this racetrack. As a longtime fan of horse racing, the artist was inspired to create this series of works that honored his passionate pastime. Flohr has studied long and hard to perfect the anatomy of the majestic thoughbred horses.
Artist Michael Flohr attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and was accepted into the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators. Since his graduation in 2000, when his works where exhibited at de Young Memorial Museum in Golden Gate Park, his paintings are gaining popularity among collectors and the art community. more
