The Salt Mine

[Image]This local landmark belongs to Morton Salt, which has mines that run miles under Lake Erie. I sketched and painted this tower 46 years ago when I took summer-school art classes from David Burris, who can be found at a local coffee shop with friends and coworkers a couple of times a week. He is the best teacher I ever had.

Very nice painting Jim, and the story that goes with it is wonderful. I didn't know that about Morton salt. Didn't know we had salt mines here in Ohio! And a very nice tribute to your teacher. I do hope that you get to have coffee with David each week.
