Joe Burns has a penchant for art.
The wrestling coach at Minneapolis' Southwest High School has been working in the industry for decades. But in the past several years, Burns has turned his attention from commercial art and design to oil painting.
Burns recently was featured by the Associated Press for his artwork that will be on display in Willison, N.D. on June 2 and in the Twin Cities in early July.
On Episode 171 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Burns breaks down his history in wrestling and art and information about his depiction of the Bakken Oil Fields in North Dakota using oil painting as the medium.
Burns is a wrestling junkie and still has goals of painting J Robinson's trademark mustache.
