With thanks to Judge Nancy Chaboun, the Scottsdale Artists' School and the Portrait Artists of Arizona, I was completely thrilled to be awarded Best of Show for my portrait, "William Whitaker: American Artist".
The exhibit is free and open to the public during the Scottsdale Artists' School's regular hours Monday through Saturday.
Here are just a few pics from the show:

A gorgeous Phoenix evening for outdoor Awards Ceremony.
I don't have much more in the way of pics but the PAOA website link at the top of this blog, and also on the links at the right will take you to more photos.
