Color Palette No. 26
Earthy Tones X Chihuahua
Nothing to see here…no I’m good. Yes my sanity is very much in tact and it is totally normal to have a color palette inspired by a teeny tiny little pupper. Real talk – I have been super into earthy tones lately. I think, in part, my brain is rebelling against all the vibrant tones I fall back on regularly. It’s trying to tell me to switch things up and challenge my creativity a bit more.
I met Jon 4 or 5 years ago when he was touring with his [then] band Air Dubai. He’s a fellow Denverite, though I didn’t meet him until he came through Philly with one of my good high school friends. In the time I’ve known Jon, I’ve watched as he has gone on to create so much more in both collaborative and solo formats. His vocals are incredible, but Jon’s mindset is what inspires me most. As an inspirational figure in the Denver community, he takes his role seriously. He recognizes that his successes have given his voice even more power – and he uses it.
Were you one of the lucky people with a view of last week’s lunar eclipse? I drove out to Casper, WY with my boyfriend, baby sister, and brothers to see the solar eclipse that passed over the U.S. last summer and was super bummed to learn we wouldn’t get a good view of the Lunar one that just happened. Some of the images that flooded my feed were so incredible, I figured why not put together a color palette. It’s been a while since my last color palette post but I’ll be pulling more of these palettes together with inspiration from instagram (bc, duh.)
Creativity is a powerful ability. It’s a skill that is honed by years of practice and nurture. My belief is that creativity is like any other skill – you have to nurtutre creativity. If you neglect it and assume it’ll be there when you need it, it’ll abandon you. Maintaining your creativity is a holistic process. The world around you urges you to think one way, part of creativity is being able to ignore those parameters and see the alternatives.
