Granddaughter graduates from Oklahoma University

All the Hardy clan in this neck of the woods plus Bob and Sue Clark, other set of grandparents, all drove to Okla City for the graduation of Amber Hardy, and then the packing and moving of her back to Argyle.  Hunter and Liz and Bob and Sue worked like work horses getting it into the rented UHaul and back home for Amber for temp residency until some lucky school gets this young woman on their teaching staff.  She graduated with honors, worked extremely hard, is very organized and disciplined.
     As she is a Kappa Kappa Gamma, I was reminded of the commission I did for this organization with a few requirements.  A family lost their father and both daughters when the father was flying his two girls back to the Uni of Arkansas some years ago, and the plane went down.  The owner of a gallery I am in, Southwest Gallery,  asked me to do a commission for him to give to the school in their honor.  This all came flooding back with the graduation this week end.  The painting was done a half dozen years ago.  Kappa Kappa Gamma flower is Iris.  Owl represents wisdom.  Fleur de Li is a symbol of the organization.  Goddess of Love is Athena, and I think their color is blue, if I remember correctly.  Here is an image in process of the painting done many years ago:
