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
