A Mural Dilemma

With each can of paint emptied by her paint roller, the fulfillment of her dreams slowly materialized. The methodical movement of the roller represented the ocean waves of her vision. This mural, it was to be her first ever commission, and she would rather drown than fail her employer, the local aquarium. Her task: to recreate an ocean scene, something to attract passers-by. Brick was less than appealing, they had said. Uh oh. That’s odd. Her blue was turning out brighter than expected. She panicked, and before she ran away, titled her work as “An Overhead View of Deep-Sea Divers.”
