This is beautiful! The softness surrounding the child help to show her innocence, even as her expression gives us the feeling that life hasn't been always easy for this little girl... Very nicely done!

Sure hope the disillusionment you have portrayed so poignantly was a short-term thing...
Beautiful portrait,,, we feel every emotion possible to feel, while looking into her sad eyes.lovetweedles
She is so beautiful but why is she so sad? Feels like she wants something. You have captured her emotions very well. Great work again Liz!
Sad but evocative of so much emotion from the viewer. Bravo Liz!
Beautiful portrait of this little girl. Her eyes says it all.
Liz,Happy new year to you. You have had a great start to 2011 with this painting. I am yet to do my first of the year though.And please please please do come for world cup. And did you go to any of the tests? I thought it was a very exciting series.
She is absolutely beautiful, Liz. Such and intensity in her eyes too. I hope that intensity carries (carried) her through when the sadness threatens to overwhelm. Magnificent job, my friend.
So sad to think she most likely never will know a happy childhood! I pray things change for her! You did a wonderful job!
