The Vineyards began as a series of painting colour from nature or painting light with light itself. The metamorphosis of colored light across vast distances, the reflections of light on the grass, flowers and trees with enormous skills. Lewis uses his brush like the wind, feeling the movement of his surroundings. This subject soon led to painting the movement in local koi ponds and most recently he has been painting American landscapes of Aspen.
