Facebook friends

I have been meaning to do a post on this for a while now.
Since I opened an account on hyves and facebook I met some interesting people.
One of them is Glen Marijnissen:
"I want to control trivial things like a sheet of paper.To form."
His hero is Alfred Jodokus Kwak... and Books are for smartasses!

...but otherwise he's ok.

Looking at his profile I found a painting I really liked, so I asked him if we could do a swap...and so we did. He asked his ma to look in the shed and he drove all the way from Tilburg to deliver it personally. In return he received a "fuelin 'around" necklace, which he gave to his ma.

Now I'm the proud owner of an original "Glen Marijnissen"

Pretty cool, isn't it?!
The man holding the Van Gogh painting asks:
"eej, Sjuul, Can you do something with that picture of that schizophrenic nutcase from Zundert?"

If you want to see more of Glen: Go and see "Faces of Life"

"Faces of Life is a project of Arts Society Tegendraads.
Located in the Johan de Wittstraat 166 in Dordrecht.

Three participating artists:
Karin Starmans
Adrienne Kusters
Glen Marijnissen.

They use the space with their art with the theme being the life stages.

This can be anything and become anything. The space is alive and continuously altered so that the visitor is continually surprised."


  1. echt wel vett! swap, bedoel ik!

  2. I have been surprised by your blog. Also that you wanted that painting. That painting of Vincent van Gogh is a very old work and stood between wood for the stove in the shedof my parental house.
    My latest work is complete differently.
    Short explanation about that painting. I have worked in horticulture in the regions around Breda.
    There is no time for art and artists. The text is also in the dialect of that area. Vincent never sold a painting and I found that weird. But I thought it over at work and there is my puberty painting of the problem.

    Thanks once again the positive attention!
    It does me well!

    Cheers Glen.

  3. I love the idea of a swap. Sharing creation.

  4. well my father always told me you have a "no" but it can become a "yes" if only you ask!! Swaps are great to do :)

  5. Heya i'm for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It truly useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.
