Week 18 Artistic Purple
This week is purple. Purple is the color of royalty, magic, and mystery.
Purple is not a common color that you tend to see. Its rarity can be easily questioned. How many purple clothings do you have? Do you have a purple car, shoe or purple shade sunglasses? Yet some choose to distinct themselves with the color purple, the most illustrious wavelength of the rainbow.
One area where there is a vast divide in opinion of the color lies in the generation gap. The Millennials, also known as Generation Y or the Net Generation may have a vast different in their opinion about Purple.
Purple tends to be a color that people either love or hate.
Here are some photos taken for the theme. Artistic Purple ( do I even come close?)

Prince won the Grammy for his Purple Rain album in 1984. In 1985 he took home an Oscar for the Purple Rain score.
Prince, the legendary and innovative musician and actor, died at age 57 on April 21, 1996. He played guitar at 7, piano at 13 and drums at 14. His father, John Nelson named him Prince so wants him to do everything he (the father) wanted to do.
Note: I am not a Prince fan nor do I know his works other than Purple Rain
A Purple Potato Chip ( a purple poker chip is worth $500 - I am not a poker fan either. : )
The “Purple Heart” is the American award for bravery.
The purple heart in this photo is an Ergonomic Squeeze Heart (was red in Color) I painted this purple and physically placed on a printed Purple Heart Medal photo. This is done only in an artistic sense and in no way meant to disrespect the award.
