It’s all in the Palette…

Hello there!

Hope your week is going well! It’s almost Friday and then Halloween! My kids are crazy excited. I’m a little less so – it looks like it will be raining here, so we’ll be flipping a coin for who stays in and doles out candy and who leads the little ones around the neighborhood, umbrellas in tow!

Today, I have a beautiful treat for you. Have you ever wondered what a famous artists’ palette looks like? Well photographer, Matthias Schaller did and he captured these beautiful and historical “portraits” of just that! Such a rare treasure to see these! I’ve paired the images of the palettes with some of the artists’ work so we can witness the connection between palette and painter…

Isn’t that so fascinating to see? I just love being able to see the same hand on the palette as we do on the canvas. To see the entire exhibit of palettes go here.

Do you ever take pictures of your own palette? They can be quite beautiful!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
