Artist's Description

For years and years, I had no clue as to what purple rain was or what the term meant. All I knew was this recording artist named Prince released an album called “Purple Rain”… and there was also a movie by the same name.

Then, one day last year, I got to see the movie for the first time… a very interesting flick, indeed. What stuck me was the depth of the song Purple Rain. I’m sure many people have different takes on this popular song… for me, I can identify with it as describing a wistful yearning by a person for something (or someone) in the past and the realization of the impossibility that whatever condition is longed for will ever exist again.

As I pondered the whole notion of Purple Rain, I painted these two pieces: Purple Rain I and Purple Rain II

This is a painting made with Golden acrylics, Jacquard acrylics, mica, watercolor, walnut ink and FW acrylic ink on heavyweight Bristol (vellum finish) paper.
