Is there anything daytime alum Walt Willey cannot do? He won the hearts of soap opera fans in his 24-year role as All My Children legal eagle Jackson Montgomery, has made countless people melt into laughter as a nationwide stand-up comic, served as a satirist and cartoonist for many publications, starred in and toured with a one-man show that he wrote, and cofounded a regional community theater. Now he has added watercolor painter to his repertoire -- and he'd love to get his fans involved.
Willey took to social media with the message, "I have been doing watercolor portraiture for friends --- from their photos -- for over a year now and I'm ready for a little experiment. Please take a look at my work -- and consider commissioning me to do some for YOU."
