The right-hand side watercolor palette originally belonged to my sister more than 20 years ago and it was handed down to me. I’ve been using it ever since and only three more colors had been added.
One of my friends was moving recently and gave her watercolor palette -the left-hand side one- to me. Now I got two!! Good for me since I’m using watercolors more and more.
My old watercolor palette reminds me of my teacher from undergrad telling us that watercolor never goes bad and we can hand it down to our grandkids. Not sure if they will ever go to my grandkids, but surely I will use these for my entire life and I will always think of whom they belonged to before they came to me.
