Welcome to "The Salzmines".

   Welcome to my blog "The Salzmines". Here you will find highlights from the past thirty years of my paintings. I have been painting for over forty. The site also contains photos of my mother Marina Salz from her Ballets Russes days and beyond. There are as well stories and photos of my father art dealer Sam Salz a few paintings by my brother Andre Salz. My newer paintings and drawings are followed by older shaped pieces but there is mostly no chronological order when you reach the older work. Please click on each photo to enlarge it and also on "Older Posts" when you get to the bottom on the right of each page. You may also choose to go to the various years in the "Blog Archive" section on the right side. For more information, please email .
