Art of the Portrait Conference - Opening Night

I spent the weekend in Atlanta at the Portrait Society of America's "Art of the Portrait" Conference.  The four day event began with a "face off" where 15 artists in groups of 3 painted 5 different models.  They had about two and a half hours to produce a portrait.  The next day the conference attendees (825 people!) voted on their favorite.  The chosen artist then did a demo for us on Saturday.  (I'll show that soon.)  Here are some of the artists in action.
