Palette Paintings

I've been wanting to do something with my used palettes for quite some time. My original idea was to use sections of them in larger abstract compositions. The more I played around with the palettes the clearer it became to me that they should be the stars of the show rather than supporting players.
I've decided to salvage parts of them by sectioning off 2 1/2" squares that appeal to me and creating abstract compositions by embellishing these sections with collage elements. I think it will be a fun ongoing side-project.
