Color, composition, lighting, technique and overall impression are all perfect. The astonishing skillful technique and killer cute posing of the girls doesn't, in my view, leave any room for improvement. So my only suggestion is that you branch out and do some "fine art" type compositions. That would get you into a museum.

These are both lovely portraits. I am not a portrait painter but I can tell you I enjoy looking at these. The only thing that even slightly bothers me is the left eye, viewer's right eye of the first image. I know she is looking up but the lower eye lid seems to be protruding just a tiny bit too much or something there. I think you have caught good personality of two beautiful children.
