Prince, The Purple One (SOLD)

Day Of The Dead art by patrushka

The Day of the Dead is a festive holiday celebrated in Mexico and other parts of the world during November 1st & 2nd. Even though this coincides with the Catholic holiday called All Soul’s & All Saint’s Day, the indigenous people have combined this with their own ancient beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones.

Title: “Prince, The Purple One”

Size: 14 x18″

Medium: Gouache on wood, varnished

The death of Prince (Rogers Nelson) was a real shocker, especially falling on the heels of Bowie. I had to honor him with a Day Of The Dead tribute, complete with purple and paisleys. May he be dancing and strutting on that stage in the afterlife, there’s a party going on up there.

“Dearly beloved,
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life.

Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The afterworld…”

– Lyrics from “Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince –
