Frustrating

I am slowly making progress. Too many things going on, and I was hopping that it would settled fast after school started, even if only one of my kids actually started school already. The older one will start in a couple of weeks.
Anyway, this is the painting so far. I modified the eye, I like it better.
I also kind of like the hair now.
