Le Mars artist’s work is her language

(LE MARS) — Le Mars resident Glenda Drennen is a watercolorist whose
art today reflects changes in mediums. 

Drennen has worked with water color throughout her career and in the
last ten years has mixed in other mediums to add more dimension to her
work. The basis for a lot of her art is often her sense of humor and
she says she paints to break visual rules.

She said that sometimes a flower, plant, tree, animal or even a person
will arise, but often times it’s just abstract.

Drennen says her love for art stems from its inaccessibility during
her childhood.

appreciate it.
