Painting a Star in Oils

"A Star is Born" - In Progress
Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines
I'll bet you thought I meant the other kind of star!
I love the pose of this little girl. For one thing. she's normally not terribly "girly." (I hope that spelling is right; it completely bewildered my spell-check.)
What I don't love is the eyes not showing. A painting really comes alive for me when the eyes are looking back.
