This is exciting to me not because I am a sorority girl but because I have painted this house in watercolors as part of my “local places” series.  I have actually painted several houses from the University of Arkansas campus.  College days are a special time where lifelong memories are made.  For these sorority girls, a painting of the house commemorates their devotion to their sorority.  It isn’t just the exterior of the house that gleams joy, it is the recall of sisterly friendships, service, and hard work remembered from seeing a displayed painting of it.  The original watercolor has sold, however prints of this house are available.  Contact me to order.

Here is a peek at the highlight in the magazine of Kappa Kappa Gamma.  What a gorgeous staircase right?  Commissions can be ordered of your own sorority house, home, vacation spot, entryway to grandma’s house,…the opportunities are endless.  Here are some other commissions I have done.  My most recent commission can be seen here.
