Traditional painter of pastel and oil portraits of Cowboys and Indians, born in Edmonton, Harley Brown now lives in Tucson, Arizona. His father was an amateur artist who encouraged his young son from age seven to pursue art. After graduation from high school, young Brown began doing department store window displays for an impressive $150 a month. “A person’s day is filled with confronting one face after another. Each face is so different; not only in features but also in angles of expression or the way light hits on it. Each face has secrets to uncover, and I interpret a reflection of the person’s life and mind. This is why I am so interested in the Indian face. Its lines, furrows, texture, and color are as much a part of nature as the Superstition Mountains.”
