While not painting Sutton-Stephens can be found producing events throughout Chaffee County including Salida’s Next Last Waltz. Lindsay’s latest effort is aptly named “Drunkard’s Dream” as a contemporary folk art homage to the biggest little show in Salida.

About the Artist
A little over three years ago I sat at my kitchen counter discussing the possibility of “pulling off” my good friend and co-producers, George A Mossman’s longtime dream……a theatrical reproduction of The Band’s iconic farewell concert, the Last Waltz, with all local musicians. We knew we’d need a lot of help and A LOT of musicians willing to break conventional rules. Not only did we break those rules, but we also broke a lot of records in the small-town music and events scene of Chaffee County in the years that followed. We were able to solidify a culture of musicians willing to give up time, love and talent to work with one another in the name of historic rock n’ roll. A culture void of ego and competitive edge. Our “Drunkard’s Dream”, just like the original started as a concert and became a legend. It seemed like a no-brainer when the Steamplant asked me to paint a last-minute November show for the Paquette in honor of Salida’s Next Last Waltz. This is “Drunkard’s Dream”. – LSS
