I recently made these color palettes for the fall season, using the Colour Lovers website :
And several years ago I made this bright palette, which I think still represent my colors for spring and summer...
You can see a repetition of colors in various tonalities, like the greens. And I don't seem to have any purples, but I quite like purple. It's true that I don't have much in my wardrobe though.
Anyhow, I've been to the bead shop that's a stone's throw away from my apartment to get some supplies for my WIPs.
And, of course, what would I do without my precious cat help?
And now to completely change subjects, I would just like to acknowledge the enormous tensions in France nowadays. Today there are more student protests against a proposed labor law and law enforcement has decided to use tear gas in Rennes...
I say tensions in France, but I should say in the world. Every day there is a new tragedy. I find myself at a loss for words. I am grieved, shocked, outraged; I think I feel rather powerless in the face of it all. I drove past the Bataclan in Paris the other day...and I couldn't help but think that life goes on in spite of it all. New babies are born; new discoveries are made; some people make peace and others war.
In fact, the ongoing project that I've been working on was born as a direct result of the massacre at the Bataclan. Not to say that the theme is related, but just that I reacted to it with a newfound passion for life, and a lessening of inner criticisms. And it's helped me reconnect with my meditation practice and walk the walk, do the work, so to speak.
So here's a big hug to all my readers and the universe in general. Bisous tout le monde, I'm wishing you well!!!!!
