My Busy Palette

I was looking at this thing this morning and thought about all of the pieces I’ve worked on using this palette.  It has probably a near 1/2″ thick layer of dried layers of paint covering its surface.  This is what is on the surface now.  I feel a unique closeness to and affinity for this board that I mix paint on and paint from.  It is in many ways like a silent companion during the painting process but very much a necessary one.  It is, in my view, a work of art in itself.

    Lovely ‘company’ for a palette and amazing how the colours end up working well together.

    I agree that this is a work of art in itself – it really tells the story of your recent art journey. In fact, I smiled when you mentioned the palette as your companion…..its like a team effort in your art. 🙂

      It is a team effort, you’re right! Kind of weird to get attached to something like that but there is a closeness/familiarity that is undeniable. 🙂
