Hello! So, my boyfriend and I want to start a project together. We live far apart, so what we want to do is, each take a canvas (that are the same size) and paint something on it. I'll take the one he makes home and he'll take mine. But we want them to look good together so that when we move in with each other in a few months the pictures can hang together! So what could we paint? I was kind of thinking it would be cute if we cut something in half and each painted a half, like the front and back of an elephant or something. Or, maybe he paints a jar of peanut butter and I paint a jar of jam. What ideas do you guys have?

Instead of an object you could also decide on a theme and a color scheme. For example, pain an animal using yellow, red, and orange. Or you could each paint something you think represents yourself. Each pain your favorite animal, or music genre, food, etc. Whatever it is you like, then when you trade you'll have a visual representation of the other person.
I suggest sticking to a color scheme (even only warm colors or only cool colors) no matter what you choose though since then you know they'll go together even if you paint two totally different things in different styles.
I also like the idea of doing two things that go together, like the peanut butter/jam idea, but might pick something less obvious that means something to you. For example, a coffee cup and container of cream if you both like coffee.

Wow thank you for the suggestions! Those are very helpful, I think choosing a color scheme is a really good idea.
