Inspired by listening to the song by Chris Rea

“Looking for the Summer”

Look deep into the April face
A change has clearly taken place
Looking for the Summer

The eyes take on a certain gaze
And leave behind the springtime days
Go looking for the Summer

This ain’t no game of Kiss & Tell
The implications you know well
Go looking for the Summer

The time has come & they must go
To play the passion out that haunts you so
Looking for the Summer

Remember Love how it was the same
We scratched & hurt each others growing pains
We were Looing for the Summer

And still I stand this very day
With a burning wish to fly away
I’m still looking
Looking for the Summer

    Oh Carmen, this is gorrrrgeous…a definite fave. LOVE the composite effect, but then you’re a master at that. Signing off now, but as I do, I will TRY to e-mail you later tonight with a few pics from Monday’s photo venture. Hugs from Ron.

  • Hi Ron. Thank you so much. This was my first painting in Corel & first face to blend with photos. It has always been a hit every time it has been posted. Glad you like it too.
