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 .... #3757958

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.
