Diane captured the river and city perfectly with each brush stroke. “The Mississippi River is the second-longest river in North America, and has had a major influence on the founding of the United States. The river starts at Lake Itasca in Minnesota and ends in Southern Louisiana at the Gulf of Mexico, making New Orleans a major port city. It is about 2,350 miles long. The Port of New Orleans is one of the busiest ports in the world. It was established in 1717 when France controlled Louisiana. It began as an export for tobacco and indigo, and an import for rice and vegetables, but later grew as a major port for cotton.”
