Just About the Entire Rainbow

The day I was deemed old enough to receive the biggest box of crayons was a big deal; sixty-four colors, their little pointy ends waiting to be pulled out and worn down in the service of creating gardens of fantastical flowers or horses in colors not found in nature. Here is the adult equivalent for those who are into using rubber stamps, carefully laid out in chromatic order in the Stampland booth at a show. For any artist, feeling like you "have all the colors" is to feel rich, to feel creatively empowered.  Anything is possible when you possess a sampling of the entire rainbow.
