His drawing, writing, and painting on recycled paper, cardboard, and the walls of his house and buildings reflects his preoccupation with muscular women boxers and wrestlers, trains, time, and money.


His Folk Art Environment
Lewis painted women wrestlers all over his house. His barn and outbuildings were decorated with images of trains, people, and places. Some had sayings and lists of towns and stations. LSCS105
