we interrupt the interviews for the colors of the moment

it's been awhile since i played with big huge labs' color palette generator i love to do this to check in on the colors that are attracting me at the moment. these are all photos i've taken recently. hmm, i sense warm scarves and quilts on the horizon...and i still haven't painted over that awful pink in the kitchen. i wonder if these colors are among the ones i bought two months ago?










i love the names of some of these: bracken, allports, chelsa cucumber, stromboli, persimmon, sherpa blue, mash, chenin... tho' my ubiquitous teals and greens are here, there are some other ranges sneaking in. what colors are speaking to you in this late summer-early autumn transitional time?

There are so many perfect choices that I'd never be able to decide. can't wait to see what your select.

I like chilean fire, mexican red and elm! The mixture of fresh colours and jewel colours ins interesting, like freshness with depth.

Even in summer, i just have the brighter version of autumnal colours - red and russet, wine, gold, deep purples and plums. I love the colours of comfort!

sherpa blue? I don't even know what that means, but I like it. My interview questions are coming soon!

I had forgotten about that color palette generator! So fun, and I like your idea of using your photos to see what you're being drawn to these days. Beautiful work as always!
