It’s Thursday again

I had something quite different in mind when I started this ― yes, I wanted bold, but I hadn’t counted on there being an explosion in the paint factory. I’ve thought about tweaking it here and there, taming some of the bright colours and lightening the water, but my husband really likes it and won’t let me touch it again ; )
