Dealing with Disappointment about a Painting

Lauren - In Progress 
Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines
I was disappointed in yesterday's portrait, disappointed enough to question what I am doing. So - without thinking too much about it - I got back on the horse and started today's portrait. 
But maybe I should think about it more. Just because I love children doesn't mean I can paint them. Then again, aren't you supposed to paint what you love?
I can give you the perfect example of why I love children. When Lauren (above) saw yesterday's painting, she said, "It looks like Savannah, only some thing's wrong with her face." Everybody should have a nine-year old in their life!
