    My favorite color is aqua, so I’m loving the first photo A LOT. But I also really dig the gray and yellow together, too.

    The other combo I’m loving right now is peach, lavender, and brown together. So warm and spring-y.

      Thanks for sharing Brandi! I like to hear other people’s color combos, you never know when it might inspire a painting. 🙂

        I pretty much always have an opinion on color, and it’s usually “love!”. 😀

        But seriously, if you like colors and patterns, you should come join me over at!! You can make your own color palettes, and even make your own patterns (thanks to a recent site revamp) or use a pre-made one (I’m a little obsessed with their plaids and stripes). Here’s my profile if you want to see more of what I’m talking about:

        P.S. I thought of another color combo I’m loving: purple and navy. I’m stuck on purple.

    Thanks for the recommendation Brandi! What do you use it for? inspiration? I looked at your site. It does look like fun.

      Inspiration, mostly. I like looking for new palettes for my jewelry.
