YT keeps introducing me to wonderful painters and composers I’ve never heard of. David Harris took the time and trouble to create this video that puts London-born, Yorkshire-bred Gerald Finzi’s music to paintings by Newton (no, not that Newton, Algernon Cecil Newton). Sit back and enjoy the soothing, sweeping beauty. The music puts me in a very sweet space. In that space, I ponder the patience and love of Newton, spending how many hours carefully observing, noting, sketching, drawing just a single view of a lake glimpsed through pine trees. One man’s experience of one facet of being alive.

David Harris has put up a few other music/painting vids. Check out his channel. (Or let YT’s auto-play function surprise you.)
