My Grandfather has just turned 80 years old.
He is a very important Brazilian artist, and was a militant communist.
He is a very skilled painter and engraver.

This is him today:



I just received lots of used and old art materials from him, as I did receive from my father at various occasions before. It´s very good to make the most of their leftovers, learn about new materials and techniques. Put everything into order, clean it and take care of it. It really makes me feel the meaning of the word "legacy".

His name is Mario Gruber by the way.
