A color palette can tell a beautiful story as deep as the painting with which is corresponds. It is the fuel, the blood that pumps into the heart of the painting. I have an entire collection of palette pieces available called “Beautiful Accidents.” This is the palette of my current phoenix rising commission.

I normally don’t make new years resolutions, but I want to make it a point to keep this blog and it’s instagram active. So I can be accountable, I’m letting you all know. I will be posting at least twice a week here, and three times a week on instagram. 

I know tumblr isn’t as popular/used as much anymore but I did see that I gained 800 followers last month so there are still people out there, and I want to keep this blog active for as long as possible. I think I’m coming up on my ten year anniversary for this blog! I’ll have to plan something special. 

My instagram is (don’t forget the .’s)
