Sanitas by PhilLewis Sanitas by PhilLewis
This is my rendition of the Mt. Sanitas Valley trail in Boulder, CO. I used to live on 4h St. in Boulder and would go hiking on this trail with my dogs every single day. The trail started two blocks from my house and I have been up there in just about every weather condition you can imagine. Through the seasons the views of this part of the mountains changes dramaticaly...they are all beautiful, but I have found Fall to be my favorite. For about two weeks towards the end of October, the trees seem to be on fire with radical hues of yellow and orange.

The Front Range is an amazing part of the country where the rolling plains meet the Rocky Mountains. I feel it is important to see where you live from a vantage point. It gives me a sense of scale to visualize just exactly where my daily life takes place. Every time I look at this piece, I am reminded of where I am in the world and of the beauty that lies in my own backyard.

I really like the graphism, the colors, the psychedelic and yet peaceful atmosphere of the landscape... Some of the patterns are very peacock-like, you must have put a lot of work into this !

a friend of mine saw my art and showed me a picture he bought at a festival of trippy salt lake with trees just like the ones in this picture and I am going to have to assume it was also by you. Small world...but props to your style, it blew my friends' minds when they looked at it trippin.
