Prince George, B.C. – When the sun is shining, the day  warm,   there is no better place for an artist to be than in a park.

First Nations traditional carver, Keom   was in Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park   taking advantage of today’s beautiful  sunshine to work  in on a special cedar box he has created.

It takes about  a day  to  put  the  box together,  but much longer to  carve to  intricate  “Spirit Art”  design that adorns  the  top of the box.

A self taught artist, Keom  also  makes  drums,  and has  passed that knowledge on to Peter Schori ( shown  at right applying paint to a  wolf design) 20160515_111755

“I’m just learning” says Schori  who has been making the  drums for about two months, but he is drumming up business.

Once finished,  the particular  box  Keom he is working on would be priced at $850 dollars  but Keom says any artist should be flexible when  pricing their work “An artist’s  motto, when you make a piece  and then you sit on it, and sit on it because you’re stuck on a price,  you’re  going to be a starving artist.  So if you have a chance to sell it,   sell it, ’cause we can always make another one.”




I could probably beat that guy in an arm wrestle

So that is what you got out of this story? Arm wrestling? But what else can we expect from a guy who thinks our Premier is a hot babe.

    Well I have to agree with Arnold on the cc thing . With her vast and various income streams she’s very hot . She’s going to be a multimillionaire, if she isn’t already . And then there’s the Maria thing , yikes . Anything looks better than that .

You could be singing This girl is on firerrrrr
