The Art of Mel Silva

The man in the photos of my Rock Day post, whom I mentioned is a teacher, is Mel Silva. I looked him up through Google and I think it is noteworthy to share a link to his beautiful art. My hubby grew up in Tucson and he had friends who did this Navajo weaving, but I haven't seen too much of it except in books. This link shows photos of his incredible work! Certainly if I was going to learn Navajo weaving, he would be a great choice. He will be at the Sacramento guild's open house day in February and will have Navajo weaving set up for us to try and I am looking forward to that.
