Girl with Braids - Part 8

This is two stages combined into one. The 1st pic is the most recent image of this painting. And the 2nd pic is from a couple days ago.
I've focused a little more on the hair, clothing and background. Although, I'm still trying to decide what level of completion I want to take this painting to. It's a tough decision since there's no "undo" button in painting. Anyway, I've made some changes to the drawing in the most recent pic compared to the one a few days ago. Can you tell?

Everyone in my camp is eagerly watching the progress. It's wonderful! Yesterday a friend and I were talking about art, and I told her she should view your blog to observe the real deal...

Well, I'm flattered...but I'm not sure if I'm the real deal, but it's nice to know I have an audience, other than my wife, checking out my blog. Did you see David Kassan left a comment? That was cool.
Question--what's your feedback as to finishing the background and clothing, do you think very loose and unfinished or completely finished and polished?
I have the luxury of choosing since it's a personal piece.

You are a really good artist. Brooke actually recognized who the "Girl with Braids" is. Amazing!!! She wants to know if you need another model.

Yeah, I did see the D.K. comment - very cool. On the question... that's tough. I mean, what kid do you know who is EVER "completely finished and polished?" :) Yet, children are exquisite, and every little detail is sumptuous, you know? Surprise us...
