Fallen Hero Portraits
409 10th Street NW

Three to five good quality high resolution (and if possible, close-up) photographs are needed. For further details regarding reference materials, click here. The decision as to whether the hero will be painted in military dress or civilian clothing can be made by you the applicant or, in some cases you may wish to leave the decision up to the artist.

I prefer hardcopy reference materials. Please send them first class with tracking, or by registered mail. (Photos will not be returned unless there is a special request to have them returned.) Digital photos are accepted if hardcopies are not available.

If you are outside the immediate family, and/or possibly requesting it as a surprise please relate that information. We may need to confer by telephone regarding the delicate nature of painting a hero without the immediate family’s permission or knowledge; however we do our best to honor your wishes. Each request is dealt with individually and with the utmost care.

Please note that the portrait of the Fallen Hero as well as a bio about the person will be posted on the Hero Gallery page of this website. All information shared will be done so with the utmost respect for the dignity of the Fallen and those who mourn them. Note: Bio information can be sent along with the photos (Please refer to Hero Gallery for examples of Bios).

Photos and Bios should be sent as soon as possible, especially if you would like the painting by a certain date.

All applicant information is kept confidential and is used by Fallen Hero Portraits strictly to establish contact with the applicant and to begin the process.

Your request for a portrait will be acknowledged promptly, and you will be notified when the portrait has been started. Also, a notification will be given when the portrait is being shipped.

If you are outside the immediate family and would also like to sponsor this portrait, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Charlotte Wiskow by email or call 507-251-0362.

Thank you for allowing us to honor your Fallen Hero.
