It is the Season.  

Today is 'Black Friday'.  
People are rushing in hoards to the big box stores.  

There is an alternative:
Support your local artists, craftsmen, galleries, 
independent book stores and shops.
Consider spending locally and let's keep the money in our communities.

  Here's wishing you a stress free and joyous Holiday Season!

Cloud Catcher

'On Any Given Day'  18x32" oil pastel, charcoal;  Kathleen Faulkner

As one travels north along the water around here one can see Lummi in many different poses.  Usually there is a cloud capping the top.  Sometimes fog turns it mysterious.  Whatever the weather, that volcanic looking mountain is always there.

The ocean's rainbow

'Pearl' earrings 1" diameter, sterling silver, paper, gouache,
watch glass lenses; Kathleen Faulkner

It is said that health and longevity follow those who wear pearls.

 The oldest known gem is a pearl dating back to around 520 B.C.  It is on display in the Louvre Museum in Paris. 

Knights going into battle would wear pearls as a symbol of strength and spirit, courage and protection.

The sheen is called orient luster.

The clouds have returned to the Northwest. 
With that comes rain.  

We are most grateful.
