Oil painting "Pensive", in progress

This is a painting I started a week ago. I haven't figured out how to photograph shiny surfaces yet so you will see several areas that look washed out. I was told I need to purchase a set of lights for that. My final steps will be to glaze a "pinker" color over the skin tones and to refine a few areas after it dries.

I used Wallis archival sanded paper specifically for oil painting. A few things I liked about it: no toning necessary, it comes in a mid-brown color and because it is paper you can crop the painting however you like. I'm not sure how to mount it yet or frame it, but how hard can that be?
