Not complete, but getting close

I really love this piece, there is something about it that makes it feel alive to me, then skin is very luminous and very well rendered. Is this a specific portrait of someone?

thanks so much. it was inspired by a photo i saw of a little girl...i loved he expression but i wanted to paint her to be a little older. someone told me i should paint more details, but when i tried to add any it took away her innocence....so i chose to keep it as is. i'm pretty new to watercolors on wood and really digging it and feel i work better with it than acrylics. someday i'll give oil a go again, just intimidated by them. curious to see how i'd use them now....
