    Maestro Mauricio Linares-Aguilar.
    Tenga muy buenas tardes, mi nombre es Guido Larrave, me dirijo a usted para comentarle que mi hija del 8 Grado de la Escuela Alemana, en la clase de arte, le han dejado que seleccionaran un artista salvadoreño que les interesaran sus obras, le acompañamos al Museo Marte y le impresiono su obra “En ESte Mar”. Por lo que desea realizarle una pequeña entrevista por este medio.
    Nos sentiriamos muy honrados que usted brindara un poco de su tiempo para que mi hija pueda exponer acerca de usted y algo de sus diferentes obras.
