The million dollar question: is it done?

I've been struggling with a painting for awhile now. Not 'struggling', but I've been working on it, on and off, and can never seem to call it finished.

There was a whole half to the left, and it was actually very pretty, but I thought it had nothing to do with the Mother and Daughter, so I decided to cut it.

This was the whole painting (minus the leaves and the blue area) before I cut it in half.

Too bad I didn't take a picture of the very first stage, but these were the following steps:

And now I'm stuck. I like it, but there's always that voice, in the back of my mind, asking "can it be better?"
