The Reliable Source reports in the Washington Post that the painting took
“not quite 8 weeks to complete.” Kim Sajet, the museum’s director, said,
“They are tremendously good friends.” It’s 9’6″ by 7’9″.
The newer judges are standing, not sitting.
It was painted by Nelson Shanks and will remain in the
