Thanks, Meryl.

The last video posted (with Song for Cello & Piano  by Daniel Tobias), I just lost it, and cried and cried. It made me think of Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings.

Steve Walker was an amazing artist. So sad.

Thank you so much for all these posts of his work, John.

I don't think I've ever heard of him before. What a talented artist he was!

His pictures are indeed very beautiful and touching. Even though most of them depict two people together, to me they convey a sense of sadness, loneliness and melancholy.

The one that touched my heart the most, is the painting of the little boy with his doll.

What a prolific artist he was!

With so much detail and realism, each painting must have taken quite some time to complete, and there are so many of them!
