Do not mistake co-incidence for fate

The boy and I are headed off to our first year of college. Unfortunately we're headed to two different colleges. This summer I told him I wanted to try painting with him, he's never painted before and I thought it would be both fun and nice to make a painting with him and use two canvas' so we could each take one. The first one was difficult and didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but he loved it and told me he wanted to do another before the summer was over... a month later- we did another and i love it.

What are your thoughts?
1- in the process

us - almost complete
-all done

2- - with our work

-completed but the glare is there a little

Pretty cool concept.  It amazes me that two people can think enough alike to do side-by-side paintings like this.

Awhh. This is adorable, and really, really pretty. Congratz for convincing him to paint with you Tongue That can be kind of tough. And you've totally got a closet-van gough on your hands (minus the ear cutting off thing...and the crazy, I'd hope...)

And I know what you're going through. My boyfriend and I have been doing the long distance thing for ages now, and it's little things like that that kind of...make the experience more rewarding.

Good luck in college to both of you, too Smiley
