Pat, overall this is very nice!
The eye is distracting however. If you painted this from a ref then an easy fix is to paint the eyes as you see them rather than how you know them, by eye parts like lids, lashes, Iris, pupil and the like. If this is from memory then it's much harder to get them right. Then you would have to rely on knowledge of parts.
Anyway she is lovely and I like the colors, and the composition is very nice.

Thankyou all so much for your kind comments and wonderful advice, so glad I am not the only one that loves Pino, agree with the eyes need work
so will definately keep this in mind

Pat,, nice you have you back in action.. a nice start if a difficult subject matter... as for the eyes I was impressed by Saphire's cougar in the WIP section where she zooms in on the eyes to get the areas easily discernible and thus easier to get the shapes and colors right for highlights etc.. and when zoomed back down looks downright photographic.. you might try that technical trick even with a ref painting to see how Pino gets the eyes painted.
