this is my first portrait, it is my grandaughter, I want to surprise her with it, but want to get your comments before I send it, don't want to disapoint her, I am sending the pic of her I used for a reference....

This is good, especially for a first attempt. Much better than my own attempts at these things. (I'm practicing myself)

Since you asked for comments right away... My only suggestion would to be to give a second glance at the nose and mouth area, they seem a bit off compared to the reference and the rest of the picture.

The eyes, hair and pretty flower are very excellent. Again, this is a great first. I'm sure she will be floored that you decided to paint her. I know I would be quite flattered.

I echo Magen's comments, plus as I see it, the lips in the painting do not appear to be as long as in the photo.

For a first attempt - you have done very well.
About a gazillion times better than my first attempt...
and my second....third.....:):):)
