Visit to Felix Solomon

Eight of us visited Felix Solomon's studio this morning. Trish Harding arranged the trip. What a wonderful man and I loved his work. He carves in the style of the early Salish people. He is working on two large projects at the moment and we got an opportunity to see what he was up to. The good news is that he is being recognized nationally for his work. He is one of only a handful of native artists recognized by the Smithsonian Institution. I fell in love with one of his carved spoons. It's the front one in the picture and the one in my hand in the last picture. Yes, I bought it and I'm very happy it's now part of our family collection of art. (Susan Scott took the last picture of me talking to Felix.)
