Description Using a great black and white photo of a lovely opera singer (acquired from the Graphic Fairy) I restored her color. I then added octopus arms and a parasol. I created a bird brush dabbed a few in the sky. For the textures I used one of my photos of the National shore line in the Perdido Key State Park and then overlaid a texture adjusted the color and then layered in some light. The caption that goes across the sea line starts off in a play of words. Instead of A Cappella it reads Octo- Pella to play off the octopus arms and in the second half it reads in Italian 'beauty by the sea side'
