When Ebony Marshman heard in February about the death of foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid through Twitter, she was surprised how moved she was at the news.
Marshman, a senior visual arts student at Western Kentucky University and Central Hardin High School graduate, decided to paint a watercolor portrait of Shadid.
“I remember this time last year he was kidnapped in Libya,” she said. “I paint portraits anyway and I knew there was a show coming up, so I chose to do a portrait of him. I worked from a mix of photos, not just one.”
