I love gardening! Our garden is already 23 years my "living painting". My children do help me now and then. My son sowed together with me seeds for vegetables and flowers when he was three. When the work was done I said that we had to wait till the little plants come out of the soil. After half an hour he came to me, very sad, and said that it didn't work: no plants. I had to explain to him that this needs days. Days was too long for him, but when he'd forgotten our work I let him see the little plants he sowed.
Hello, I am Marleen. Although I paint a lot, I am not a professional painter. But I love painting! Colours make me happy and with colours I can see better since I am visual disabled (albino). I want to show you that, like the paralympics, people like me can paint too. On large canvas and with problems to see details I do still manage to get where I want. Enjoy art for it makes our world more beautiful. Marleen
