Pierre Bonnard inspired moment

It's snowy outside. My kids are home from school. One of them is not feeling well and wants a bath. Usually, bathing is done at night in our home. But, today is an exception. A bath in the daytime allowed me to see the scene in a new way.

It was that blue-green of the water and the gentle line that caught my eye thanks to the contrasting peachy-orange skin and tiles. And for a moment, thanks to the light of day and the chance to sit for a spell in the bathroom, I had a sense of what Bonnard felt when he watched his woman bathing - peace and quiet in the midst of a concert of colors.
