Fish and Octopus Rock Painting Idea

painted rock with fish and octopus

For part of out local rock painting challenge, we had the theme "love." 

I had painted this rock with varying shades of Martha Stewart acrylic paint to make an ombre and thought an ocean scene with kissing fish added with Posca extra fine paint pens would be perfect!

Unfortunately, as I was adding fish, the fish to the left of the heart had a problem with its tail. 

In order to fix it, I turned the "fish" into an octopus. 

Of course, now we are left with a scientifically confusing rock as an octopus is more likely to eat a fish than to kiss it. 

Prehaps it's just trying to lure the fish in so it can eat it? What do you think?
