Painting Children's Portraits

Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines
I rephotographed this painting three times and now - that I am actually posting it - I notice she's pop-eyed, in my painting only. In real life her eyes are an exciting feature, so full of energy and life, as is she.
I can't say that I'm satisfied - when can I ever say that - but it's time to let it simmer on the back burner.
I'm having such difficulties lately I'm beginning to think my previous success at painting portraits was a fluke.
But I still believe in practice!
