Being a Canadian artist, painting Neil Young was inevitable. I have always been drawn to songs and artists that have had “something to say”. Whether or not I agreed with an artist’s platform on political or social issues, I always enjoyed the passion that often reveals itself in these types of songs. Although I can’t claim to know all the info or feelings surrounding the Kent State shootings of May.4, 1970, I have always been drawn to, if not haunted by the way Young (or Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) portray the unrest and injustice of that day.  These emotional feelings can be especially felt during the live recording with the cries of “why” towards the end of the song.

I decided to portray an elderly Young to exemplify his unwavering and unapologetic point of view on many of the social issues of those days as well as today. When you hear Young play this song today, he does so with the passion as if the event happened only yesterday.
