Piece description from the artist
My friend lives in Vermont and takes some amazing photos of the scenery around there and uploads it to facebook. He asked me to do a painting for his with no boundaries, anything I could think of. So I actually ended up using his own photography as inspiration for this one. And I collaged a map of the area that he lives in into the background, Burlington is bottom left.
