Louis was born in 1903 in Nova Scotia, Canada. By nature he had a fascination with painting. In particular, he loved drawing antiques. Throughout his life, Louis sold his paintings to tourists visiting the Nova Scotia area and raised a family with the proceeds. Income is very meager. So Louie lived in poverty until almost the end of time.

Meanwhile, artist John Kinner has found a rare painting by Matt Lewis called the Black Truck. John once ate this sandwich and gave it to the hotel owner, who found it almost 50 years ago. Irene Demas still runs the hotel with her husband Tony.
