Hope.........finished.  This little girl took a little time, using three photo references, and a lot of decision making, but worth the effort.  I softened the redness in her cheek and punched up the light a little more on the wave of hair since this photo.  I am entering her in a juried competition this month.  I just need to get a better photo.  We'll see how that works out.  One never knows........

Bravo! This is just beautiful. Wish I could get up close and enjoy all your brushstrokes. I'll bet this does VERY well in competition.
