Purple Rain (Tribute to Prince) by dblasphemy
Purple Rain (Tribute to Prince)
Like many of you I was shocked and saddened to hear that one of my favorite artists, Prince, passed away suddenly on Thursday.   As a huge music fan and a lover of unbridled creativity in all its wonderful forms, losing Prince feels like someone turned down the lights a little on our world.  

I've loved Prince's music since his "Little Red Corvette" days in the early 80s. One of the things that always most fascinated me about him was that he taught himself to play the piano (at age 7), the guitar (at age 13) and the drums (at 14). As a young person he gave me hope that I could teach myself to succeed creatively.

If you've followed my work over the years you know that I try not let the world intrude into my gallery.   I've always wanted DB to be a place to escape the pains of real life.   This is an exception.

I was working on this render when I heard the news Thursday and I immediately started adapting it to become a tribute to his genius. I hope you enjoy it.

Rest in peace Prince!

Originally found you through my Mom (Valshaena), intend to get a lifetime sub to your website once I'm able.
You, sir, are a highly-skilled person and an inspiration.

Hey Ryan,
You know I NEVER do tags, but to this one I do a single one time exception. Its to beautiful not to
Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to all deviants who deserve it (Or as many or few as you want). If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!HeartHugs Anne
