ONLY TIME

Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows, only time?
And who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose, only time?

Who can say why your heart sighs,
As your live flies, only time?
And who can say why your heart cries
when your love lies, only time?

Who can say when the roads meet,
That love might be in your heart?
and who can say when the day sleeps,
and the night keeps all your heart?
Night keeps all your heart…..

Who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose, only time?
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time?

Who knows? Only time
Who knows? Only time

ENYA

This is a digital painting capturing the mystery of ancient Egypt and it’s goddess Bast against a wind swept background of the pyramids, all done in a sensuous orientalist, impressionistic style.

Mouse drawn and painted in photoshop 5.5. Windows ’98 platform.
I think a thank you is called for. A wonderful photographer on her discription of how she achieved an effect gave me the idea on how to paint this. She had taken a colored photo of her grandchild and father. She made a duplicate layer and turned it into a black and white and erased on the child to the colored photo below. I loved the effect. I used the same technique here working back and forth between 10% fills of the background red and erasing with the eraser set on airbrush at 1.
