Date Night In: Frog Painting
For our wedding anniversary, we decided to do something a little different to celebrate the special day this year. We bought a bottle of wine and this paint-by-numbers canvas, and worked on a piece of art together. Of course – it didn’t take just one night. It took many hours, but we started on our anniversary date night. In February, it is still pretty cold in Qingdao, and the pollution levels are high. We had also just gotten back from a month-long adventure in Australia and New Zealand, so we were eager to stay in for our date.
Our canvas came with tons of tiny little pots of paint. Each of them in duplicate – clearly, it was meant to be!
If you and your spouse are creative (and patient) and love a date night in, then this is a really wonderful idea. We felt a huge sense of accomplishment when we finished this painting this canvas. In fact, we put it right in the middle of our dining room, so that we can look at it everyday! We love it!
Next up, I think I’d like for us to work on something new for Eli’s bedroom or playroom. Perhaps a triple canvas, like the one below. I’m looking for three animal. Probably not a dog drinking champagne… haha, not for the playroom anyway!
