Gloria J Zucaro's "After Harley Brown"

This is my painting done in portrait class with Ann Feldman.  This is oil on a canvas sheet that is 16" square.  It is painted from a photo of a painting done by renown artist Harley Brown.  The link is to a site that shows one of his recent publications of a painting done in pastel of another little Indian  girl.
I have not finished the background, and may also need to make some little value changes around her mouth, but I am pretty happy with this exercise.  I am posting this for Paint Party Friday.  Have a good week everyone, and take the time to visit other artists' sites.  For yourself, do more art!
