Home Portrait Commissions

Miller Home
Watercolor Painting
For the past several years, I have had the honor of being the artist for the Dunwoody Home Tour in Dunwoody, GA. Yesterday I attended the 41st annual Home Tour.

Each year, five generous members of the community graciously allow their homes to be on a public tour to inspire others on the possibilities for designing and decorating their homes.  Proceeds from the tour go to support the Dunwoody Women's Club, a service organization of local volunteers who contribute to the community in the areas of conservation, education, home life, international outreach, public issues and the arts.

The Women's Club commissions paintings of each of the homes which they then give as thank you gifts to the participating homeowners. I've included photo's of all the finished home portraits which I did in watercolor as well as a couple of photo's of me taken with the paintings on display at yesterdays' show.

It has been a fun project each year working with the wonderful leaders of the Dunwoody Women's' Club and the homeowners to create a special remembrance of their home and participation in this community event.
