Palettes to organize!

I have collected paper art pieces since I was in college~
My idea of fun when I was 18?
Antique shows, festivals... estate sales... auctions.

Most of my palette finds were less than $1. each~

I'm never bothered by condition...
The less perfect~ the more loved!

Met a woman who deals in paper...
Boy does she have cool things!
I help her sort, move etc. work off a few palettes!

When I have "collections" they are from her stash.
Her prices were so reasonable...  because she has a love of paper.
A wonderful gift from her~ knowledge.

Some have advertising~

Some in my collection are pages from old magazines
that someone saved & preserved~

Funny little pup trying to entertain the struggling artist!

Calling cards...
Look at the precious little expression of the little one!

Time frozen on a palette...
Much the same as the artists who painted history for us~

You must notice my favorites?

A couple with birds~

Beautiful ladies...


Most favorite!
That would be a fun place to paint~

Wrapped in plastic~
Tossed in baskets, tucked inside books, in the bottom of postcard boxes...
Turn over every rock!
Peek behind every bush!

How I love to play in my studio~
Fussing with piles that have hidden moments.
An excuse to look at ALL when I put two little treasures away.

Hope your Sunday is filled with joy!

I have never ever seen paper palettes - never - and I've been around a long time, and I dig through to the last item in a shop -but I shall start looking harder - surely there must be some, somewhere for me to find. They are wonderful, whimsical, intersting - oh all those things - thank you so much for sharing.
