Inspiration:

I took a week long acrylic ink painting workshop, taught by Judy Coates-Perez. She was instructing how to create abaca transfers, and I chose this octopus to transfer onto my painted background. Meanwhile, my daughter informed me that she had lost her phone in the water while on a boat.

Completely Original

What's not mine?
