Pallette vs. Palette

I am always getting the spelling of this word mixed up. As a painter, I use it a lot in my blog posts so I decided to Google it to find out the correct spelling.

I don’t think I will ever get it mixed up again, LOL.

Pallette: an armpit plate in a suit of armor.


1. A board, typically with a hole for the thumb, which an artist can hold while painting and on which colors are mixed.

This is my PALETTE from a recent painting session.  I love my stay wet palette since I paint with acrylics and they dry out so quickly.  This palette has saved me a lot of money by keeping my paints wet for a lot longer period and it allows me to keep my mixed paints wet for more than one painting session.  I have a little spray bottle with water that I “spritz” on it that keeps everything just the right dampness.

It has been a good but hectic week.  I met with a local gift shop/art gallery and they are going to carry my jewelry and paintings.  I am so excited.  I have been busy this weekend putting together a display for my jewelry.  I will share a picture of it soon. 🙂

Have a wonderful creative day, Janell
