Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!
For the second consecutive year, Kondex has donated a framed art piece with three custom-painted sickle sections to the U.S. Custom Harvesters annual auction. And for the second consecutive year, the artwork was bid on and purchased by Ron Wheeler, senior product manager with Flexxifinger. When we heard about this repeat buyer, we had to learn more.
“My wife and I love them; they’re so unique,” Wheeler said of the paintings. “When I saw Kondex had donated another set this year, I called my wife and she told me not to leave without it.” And that’s exactly what he did.
The artwork sold for $250, which directly supports the U.S. Custom Harvesters organization, and is now on display in Wheeler’s home office with the 2015 paintings. According to Wheeler, the paintings are not only loved by his family, but admired by customers visiting from around the world. He hopes to continue adding more of these paintings, noting that he only needs one more to make it a collection.
