Are you talkinga about the application Image Well? If so you have to address the producers of Image Well.
This forum is about the application Pages. If it is something in Pages you refer to as Image Well please explain what it is.

Have you possibly opened a different system or user?
The color swatches are held in your User Library so they are available to all applications.
Apple has not thought through the Color Picker. Whilst it has a lot of technological features most are partially implemented and the whole set-up has no thought to transferring or saving swatches. There is a slightly clumsy system of labelling and retaining named swatches, but those have no hooks into styles or savable and reloadable palettes. They are just a way of naming what you have.
If you want swatches to reuse the only durable solution is to create a document with colored and labelled image boxes which you can resample using the Color Picker's sample tool.
