Compressor Capacity

I've got a compressor that I bought in 2006 and it's been moving around the country with me (unused) since 2007. It worked great for air tools and working on my old truck. I pulled it out of storage the other day thinking that I would use it to run spray guns. I had no idea that spray guns required so much CFM.

I've attached a picture of the specs but here is the gist:

2 hp
33 Gallon (Vertical)
8.6 SCFM @ 40 PSI
6.4 SCFM @ 90 PSI
Max Pressure: 150 PSI
Displacement: 11.9 CFM
Color: Red =)

Can I make this work for a hobbyist? I would be using it to spray activator and paint.

Or, do I need a blue one? :)
