Here is an English translation:

I have read your blog and I do not know if it interests to you... but 
ther is a way to use Cairo without using P/Invoke. The trick consist in

A greeting.


 From which I have seen, the way for using Gtk.DotNet.Graphics it is to 
use the FromDrawable method to get a System.Drawing.Graphics for 
drawing. I'll make some experiments with this.
