True Colours Thursday - PUCE
Not an easy colour to find so this is as close as I can get. The glass vase holds a plant that creeps, not sure of the name. The image behind is 'Regeneration' one of my digital images, printed on canvas.
There are some more PUCES (that doesn't sound right!) on the True Colours page. Click here
Found this on the web:
THE PUCE POEM:
Oh what is the use of the color named puce? So often called mauve But never chartreuse
Overlooked and ignored Hardly every adored It sits and it waits All pointless and bored
Not magenta, not pink Nor rose I would think But something between Not a shade, but a fink
Then a webmaster sage While programing a page He types 'CC8899' To make puce all the rage
"I'm useful, I'm wanted!" "I don't have to feel haunted!" "For somebody needs me." The happy puce flaunted
"What?!" The webmaster spits "Is my screen having fits?" "This color is vile, and not what I want" And so 'delete', he then hits.
