I didn't do well with the whole piece a week challenge for many reasons: two arm injuries, busy summer with kids, low motivation. Last week at class I struggled so much with a face that I really need to focus on faces or my work won't improve. So the new birthday challenge is to do a small face a week. Just the face. I got a new puppy and it will be a busy summer again but here's hoping I get everything finished and improve to another level.
