article imageProject Compassion: Artist paints those killed in action (video)

By Anne Sewell
May 28, 2013 in Arts
Manti - Kaziah Hancock is a patriot with a difference. A skilled artist living in Utah, she paints portraits of sons and daughters who have been killed in action as a memorial for their families.
Kaziah is a wonderful lady who supports the troops, without having to support the war. As she herself puts it, "I don't care about political crap - I just love freedom."
Living on a goat farm in Utah, Kaziah makes a living with her landscape art, but paints these wonderful heroes portraits for free.
She has made Project Compassion to immortalize the heroes of the war for their loved ones. On her website, families can request a painting of their lost son or daughter by completing a request form and sending a photo.
In the video we meet a couple living in Northome, Minnesota, who had lost their son Dale in the war in Iraq. Three years later, Harlan and Karen Panchot receive an important delivery via FedEx - a beautiful painting of their lost son.
Anyone wishing to have a portrait painted can contact Kaziah, or if you would like to buy a painting as a donation towards the cause, you can do so on her website.
