After a crazy weekend at Coachella, I thought I would go back to basics. And by basics I mean something learned in kindergarten: the color wheel. Who doesn’t fondly remember the discovery of purple? Green? Orange? And the disappointment when it became clear that mixing them all together created not a magical rainbow of color, but gross brown. So many failed fingerpaintings.
In following with the timeless ROYGBIV, we begin with red, orange and variations thereof. AND in following with kindergarten-level activities, I shall name all items I can think of in that color spectrum:
Clifford the Big Red Dog
