Purple Flowers for Prince

Like much of the world, I just heard that the artist known as Prince died this morning. This has been a tough year for losing performing artists for those of us in certain age brackets. Prince was just 6 months older than I am, so I felt this very strongly. I watched his career from young man who at first got booed off stages, to successful well known name who stuck to his own beliefs and integrity in the face of attacks, unpopular beliefs and controversy. He was very courageous, and a supremely skilled and talented musician.

Purple flowers for Prince is a nod to his very successful son & album "Purple Rain".

You will be missed dear artist, safe travels to your next destination.
