***Excerpted synopsis from Calhoun’s Collectors Society, Inc. Insert:   ”’The Balloon Man’, by the famed American Artist Dominic Mingolla, is a visual delight. Mingolla’s gentle Impressionist (Impressionism) style frames this charming scene in a rainbow of glorious colors. ‘The Balloon Man’ is a new experience in tenderness and innocence composed with the mastery of this artist’s unique talents...Although similar Mingolla porcelain plates are being sold widely at $65 and more, ‘The Balloon Man’ will never be available through dealers. We have reserved the entire edition for our members as part of our quest to bring you the most desirable and unusual collectibles in the world...”


***Excerpted Plaudits from the Art Critics for Mingolla’s Crowning Achievement “The Balloon Man”:    “Just looking at Mingolla’s creation fills me with a sense of warmth generated by his marvelous use of color. Only Mingolla could create a glorious rainbow of hues out of individual splashes of vivid color. MIngolla’s eye for beauty is exceptional” - Richard Lewis Frederick, Artist and Art Critic.” 


“A master of composition! We remember fondly the sight of young children delighting in the colorful wares of the balloon man. But the images have never been as brilliant as those seen through Mingolla’s eyes. The colors are applied with such delicacy and purpose that you are actually drawn into the work of art. And that is the ultimate achievement in art: for the painting and the viewer to become one.” Peter Franklin Carroll, Art Historian and Art Critic”
