Artist Kaziah Hancock

As usual, I watched the Today show this morning and they had a segment on about artist Kaziah Hancock and her portraits of compassion. She paints portraits of fallen soldiers and sends them to the families... and all of it is free of charge.

I searched the Today show web site looking for the segment, but couldn't find anything. Then I went globally... which means I googled her, and found what looks like the original interview. What you read is what was on the Today show. I strongly recommend looking at the video of the artist to get a good sense of her. She's as colorful as her portraits.

There are five or six other nationally well known artist participating in this project. I think there is a link at the bottom of the article, if you are interested.

That was so enjoyable to watch...what a character and wouldn't I love to sit across a table with some wine and time, and talk to her.

You find the "bestest" stuff. Thanks.

I think I saw the whole thing but it seemed to end abruptly...I'm hoping I didn't miss some.

Now on to google her name and learn all about her...

A big thank you!!

Inbetween my puttering around today and cleaning things I did a search and this was interesting about Hancock.

Yeah... I had seen that. And I've read about her lawsuit. And her book. She's one strong woman. Be sure to invite me if you get a chance to have that wine and chat with her.
