CONTACT page with image background

The CONTACT page on uses an image as background. Hence the problem of “reading” whatever text is displayed over it. I’ve tried a tint under the content area to try to separate the text from the image and I tried to “clear” the response boxes.
I am now toying with the idea of placing the whole contact form in a pallet on the right of the page, sort of echoing the navigation palette on the left.
Is this feasible? How to control that right-hand palette independently from the one on the left?
Is this a ridiculous idea?

I suppose you can look at the source code for a contact form on a regular contact page and then copy that to a pallet.
Remember, when the site goes to mobile sizes, the contact form will then need to be accessed by the mobile menu. Not all users will figure that out.
