FLWERS - Anthony Riley

Well, although I did begin working on plans for a large painting I got bogged down very soon after beginning and decided I'm not really interested in doing a large painting right now- at least not that one.  In the mean time a good friend and fine musician, Bob Loy, asked me if I would be interested in making a video of a song he recorded with Anthony Riley.  
Anthony's story is a sad one, chronicled here and in many other publications -
Bob was in the middle of recording many of his own songs with Anthony when he died.  This is a lovely piece called Flowers.  This is not the official version.  It is an exclusive preview for you faithful followers.   After working with the music for a couple of weeks I find it very moving. Is it the back story, the lyrics, the voice?  Let me know what you think.

Here is the video -
