I honestly thought this was an image of a baby doll. It must have been the eyes. Somehow I'm thinking you didn't ask her to say, "cheese". Had to of been "icecream" or "popsicles" or "chocolate" or ....

Excellent rendering! Not a detraction at all, but I think that a kid that bubbly would have made a first class straight-on image. Did you have to put a lot of thought into whether to paint it or leave it alone? I liked the thumbnail even better before I saw that it was painted. You do wonderful work.
