It's the little things
|'Things We Need' 10x10" oil pastel; Kathleen|
I look down at the curb to see all the cigarette butts that have been tossed down
on the ground
destined for parts unknown.
Cigarette filters are made of 95% cellulose acetate, a plastic.
The balance is paper and rayon.
The thin plastic fibers look like plankton,
a food source,
to unsuspecting marine life.

humans are very adaptable
|'Another Look' 9x20" oil pastel; Kathleen Faulokner|
Being able to see over a distance
is a wonderful thing.
I remember coming home from the Aleutians after a few years there.
The evergreens that I grew up with
made me claustrophobic for awhile.
I had become accustomed
to a very different lifestyle.
This can happen with current events, as well.
we get used to a new level of insanity
pretty soon it seems normal

Rainworks Art Trail
|cutting out the stencil|
‘Water is a transparent and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.
Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface.
It is vital for all known forms of life.
Safe drinking water is essential to humans and other lifeforms even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients.
Ditches and storm drains do not connect to a treatment system, so everything that flows down the drain goes directly to the nearest water body, ultimately flowing into the ocean.’ *
Be mindful of what you toss. It could end up in a stomach somewhere.
Rainworks project includes stencils located throughout Mt Vernon, WA by seven artists in conjunction with the Skagit Conservation District and Mt Vernon, WA.
My stencil can be viewed on a rainy day in front of City Hall.
More information and a map of the locations are available at http://www.skagitcd.org/
or pick up a map at TriDee Arts in downtown Mt Vernon, WA.

'Right On! Rites, Rituals, Remembrances'
Facere Jewelry Art Gallery, Kathleen Faulkner
We lived in apartments in the city.
I learned to be quiet at a very early age
so as not to disturb the neighbors.
All around me was the noise of the city.
It was background.
As a small child
with family from the deep South
I heard stories
that made me afraid.
Later I learned about diversity
It opened up my eyes
and made the world
a more interesting place.
'A House of Many Colors' brooch, 4x1.5"

Remembrances' Facere Jewelry Art Gallery,
