This wasn't Marek's first time he held a watercolor and a paintbrush, but it was his first non-abstract work (with a little help from mommy... yes, sheer talent runs in the blood). The artwork was inspired by his little brother, Markus' singing of the Yellow Submarine (by the Beatles) chorus. But he decided to make the underwater vessel purple since it was among his favorite colors, (next to yellow, and before brown). After placing the finished product on the wall, he was staring at it for quite a while. It was very nice to see him full of pride.
