About This Painting

I haven't done a lot of traveling.

I have been an hour and a half south of the border below San Diego, CA, to Ensenada, Mexico... And I think that when I was 13 I actually set foot in Canada up there at Niagara Falls when we drove across the US on a family trip... maybe not. That was a long time ago, and I wasn't paying attention.

Anyway, you probably gather that I don't get out much.

Consequently, I don't know if the rest of the world's restaurants are like they are in America, in that any restaurant you go into whether Persian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Indian; name it, they will have salt and pepper shakers on the table.

The two basic spices of life.

These condiments and their reflection on the dark, polished-wood table just happened to catch my eye on a trip to Salt Lake City, UT last year. I was there on business, and to satisfy my thirst in the evening I went in search of a good hand-crafted ale, and was directed to a warm, popular little haven called Squatter's Pub.

The ale was ice cold and delightful. If you're ever in Salt Lake City, I do recommend Squatter's.
