    El arte de mi padre, un obrero ferroviario / The art of my father, a railway worker.

    Recién he encontrado un libro con apuntes y bocetos a lápiz realizados por mi padre. Éste es el primero que escaneo, y luego iré escaneando el resto de los dibujos que serán expuestos en la Galería. Mi padre siempre quizo que sus dibujos fueran exhibidos en alguna sala de exposiciones. Hoy día la Galería de Art Rage cumple su sueño. Él falleció en el año 1985.

    I've just found a book with notes and pencil sketches made ​​by my father. This is the first scan, and then I'll scan the rest of the drawings (that) will be exhibited in the gallery. My father always wanted his drawings were exhibited in a real Gallery. Today the Art Gallery of ArtRage meets his dream. He died in 1985.

    Hello. Damasoci just beautiful Feel I could sit looking at it all day did your father tint it as well or is that down to the age of the paper. Also looks more like a ink sketch then pencil but come what may
    I would give my eye teeth and be as happy as a pig in. S T. If iwas one of mine. Ok. It also shows
    The great tenderness. He had for his mother. a true family heirloom Thank you for showing
    One last question. Had your father any schooling in art???

    Mi padre fue un artista autodidacta. Tomó algunas clases de dibujo cuando su escaso tiempo libre lo permitía. Formó parte activa de la Academia de Artistas Ferroviarios, organización cultural que una vez al año exponía los trabajos de los trabajadores ferroviarios.

    My father was a self (made) taught artist. It took some drawing classes when his limited free time allowed. He was an active of the Academy of Railway Artists, cultural organization that once a year setting out the work of the railway workers.

    Thanks a lot for your warm words...
