I can't color enough, I would color all day every day If I had my way, I would use every crayon in my box.

AbsDespite my heavy supply of crayons as a child--my mom was an art teacher and we had gallon ziploc bags FULL of crayon nubbins--I was always disappointed that I couldn't create real scenes in my amateur drawings because the colors were too primary. They were for kids. I wanted real colors.

Well I just found out from the Wackopedia entry that they came out with some real colors in 2007!!

In 2007, Crayola released the True to Life crayons. The tri-color tips are intended to "bring scenes to life." Each crayon is extra-long and contained within a plastic casing similar to that of Crayola Twistables crayons. On the table, the background represents the predominant color, and the text represents the supporting colors:

Um, awesome. I think it's time to draw some landscapes.

But if I were a color?

Despite my penchant for green or scarlet and gold, I'd have to go with good old gray.

It's the color of my eyes and the color of my favorite clothes. It's both the insides and outsides of me. And it doesn't feel boring at all.
