A palette is like brain hemispheres. Its left part has exceptionally practical side. It is being stick to by that part of body which is afraid of failure and hates changes. On the other hand, the right one is ready to leap into action, sounds the alarm, reaches out for experiments, trying to absorb new knowledge.
The center stands neuter, reserving the right to encourage one side after another, clinging to its aura of uncharted territory, forming by means of “thumb print” equally similar to the eye of “big brother” in the sky and dinosaur’s footprint not being discovered by scientists yet.
The same thing goes for paints. The closer they are to the brush the less they are demanding, but still bright, merging into the single ground-color. But during their trip to “the middle of nowhere” they separate from one another, trying to distinguish themselves, reveal their essence, consolidating their significance in the experiment.
Who said that the final outcome of creation can be on the canvas only? A palette is an art in itself. It breathes colors. It changes its shape at their expense. It reflects the ambivalence of author, his feelings.
A palette is like a life map. It argues with doom. Now it’s humbly follows the outskirts of fate and now it rushes into its center, changing it due to its whim from left to right, from sadness to happiness.
