The Secret Life of Palettes

Yesterday I painted for 2 whole, glorious hours!


Uninterrupted, uninhibited and unphased.

I didn’t worry about my “ideal customer” or sharing online for a group or being watched.





What I will share is what was left behind.


The palette leaves the story of the Artist

How each colour is used (or not used).

The techniques and tools employed.

The bravery in colour mixing.

The perfection in the imperfection

Maybe I’ll share the finished piece with you.

Maybe I won’t.

It won’t matter.

Because at least I did it.
