MY COMMENTS:
Incredibly bad photo...painting has more visible brushstrokes than shows here. The background has more green/brown and the lights of face are less pink.
Won an award for this with $$$...makes my day!

Critique please.

I ilke how you treated the darks! Just one big shape, and since we tend to see less detail in shadow, it reads well.

Congrats on the $$$ :}
