CONTEST: Win a Neil Young & Crazy Horse Print

"Along For the Ride"
Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Kingston Ontario, Canada, on Oct 5 2012
Art by Lindsay Walker
(Click photo to enlarge)

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you hearts of gold out there!

And in the spirit of love and all that is good about Neil Young & Crazy Horse and their rustie fans, we're pleased to be able to offer a free print of the art above to a Thrasher's Wheat reader. Details follow below.

Thanks to the artist Lindsay Walker, the lucky winner will receive a Limited Edition Artist's proof signed/numbered print measuring 27" X 42".

Lindsay tells us this about the print:
The original photo reference is from the first time I saw the Alchemy Tour in Kingston Ontario, Canada, on Oct 5 2012. The finished oil on hemp painting is from a compilation of dozens of reference photos.

The "Poncho Hop" and the crowd is how they look when I see them in my head. I tried to recreate that feeling of overwhelming joy that a Crazy Horse concert brings to everyone that I have ever seen or met at a show. Where everyone is just so happy, and alive. Where the air is filled with Peace, and Love. That place where you lose yourself in the music, and nothing else matters but that very moment. Anyone who has been lucky enough to attend a Crazy Horse with Neil concert surely remembers how incredible riding with The Horse live actually is. You never forget that magical feeling of being there, and you just can't wait until the next time when you are there again.

Until that next time when you are "Along For the Ride". And what a ride it is.
Lindsay is a painter living on Prince Edward Island, Canada who has been creating art about humanity living harmoniously with nature. Prince Edward Island, with such rich culture, surrounded by the beauty of pristine red sandy beaches and rolling green hills has been the inspiration for his work. He has found beauty in the unexpected...rusty vintage trucks sitting abandoned in the woods with trees and life growing wild through it’s patina only time can create. His paintings depict quiet simple moments of rural life past and present.

After deep introspection and concern over the welfare of humanity and grace he is feeling compelled to begin a new body of work about our past actions and habits that have effected our present day and will effect our future world. He hopes to inspire conversation, debate about our responsibility and hopefully our enlightenment. The increasing damage we inflict upon each other and Mother Earth is a subject we can no longer ignore. Lindsay plans to begin a new adventure on canvas in 2015, pushing beyond his usual comfort zone, beyond the nostalgia of the good ole' days. He has been thinking about and wanting to start this new work for years and was waiting for something to happen before starting...what that was he's not sure. But now he feels a driving passion to conquer his fears with love in his heart, and speak his truth.

Lindsay lives out in the country with his dogs, and shares Walker Studios in the City, a fine art and jewellery gallery with his wife Jeanette.
