The comments made me think, and motivated me to rework the painting. Here’s the new version:

Can't decide which I like better. They both have merit. I like the change around her feet (2nd), but I liked the dark behind her head(1st). I also think toning down the 'whitish' wash/glaze was a good thing - makes her pretty face stand out better. All-in-all, you did a beautiful job, Sheryl.

Thanks Crystal and Jean! The painting ended being just ok for me. Not like I would ultimately like to paint but it was a fun experience. I am anxious to get the yard work out of the way and get back to painting.
