You're Fired

is a really cool place you go to paint. You get to pick from all sorts of different things like mugs, plates, banks, etc. Now, I am NOT talented in this area, AT ALL, but I find it a lot of fun. I started going in 2003 with my friend Ellen, then skipped a bunch of years. Last week I convinced Erick to go with me on our date day (Devin's school day during Erick's vacation week). He hemmed and hawed but finally agreed. Let it be known that he did enjoy himself!

So here is an example of a piece I did in 2003 (left) and the piece I did last week (right).
Not much different, right? Both mugs, both beginner talent level, etc. So what has changed about my skill in the last 7 years?
CLEARLY my coffee drinking and the amount of coffee I require INSIDE the mug!!!

You're Fired here

Very nice mugs. I like them both, but I'd have to go with your new one for the same reason. More coffee!

Love the mugs! I would also opt for the bigger one. I never thought I would be a coffee drinker. I guess kids help with that.
