"My most influential instructors have been Dale Popovich, watercolorist and Jon McDonald, Illustration and Medical Illustration. I love to work in watercolor more than any other medium because of the freedom and movement of the paint and water, and because of the magic that happens as it dries."
– Glendalynn Doorn-Specht
#Glendalyyn Doorn-Specht won Best of Show at the 2014 Michigan Artist Competition. back in June.
Glendalynn had attended my night classes at the American Academy of Art with her mom in the 80s. She had a demanding fulltime job at Leo Burnett as a media buyer, but had an intense passion for learning and art. She took part-time fundamentals classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and I found her to be a very good draft person with a strong desire to learn how to #DrawAndPaint. Some 30 years later, after raising a family, she again contacted me at my studio to pick up #DrawingAndPainting. She's taking classes with me at the Palette & Chisel in Chicago and has also attended classes in my private studio in my home. After several months of working hard she received the first place award at The 2014 Michigan Artists Competition. Glendalynn's contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
