52 Weeks of Color :: Week 43

I’ve spent the week sorting, cleaning, and purging my studio/office, and the takeaway? I have a lot of stuff. Like, a lot of stuff. I never knew I had such a talent for hiding and storing things from myself. Oh, the things we learn.

On the flip side, my donate pile far outnumbers the trash pile, and that feels good. I like knowing these things can still be of use to someone else.

Since I’m still finding beads and half-finished jewelry pieces, despite closing my jewelry shop years ago, I figured I’d do a palette pulled from one of those projects. It looks good, don’t you think?

How has your week been?

Seeing “Week 42″ gave me a shock today. Week 42 means we’re 10 weeks from the end of the year… which doesn’t seem possible, does it? Where did 2014 go, exactly?

As for the palette, I’ve got Italy on the brain, and these colors? Inspired by a photo of gelato. You’re welcome.

I know this is more of a “summer” palette than a “fall” one, but I can’t help myself. I love this time of year, when the weather gets cooler. It also doesn’t hurt that I had a birthday this week, so I figured why not put together my favorite colors to celebrate?

How are you doing?
