things we remember

'Childhood Landmarks' necklace 30" sterling silver,
gouache, graphite, ink, mica, glass lenses;
Kathleen Faulkner

I was born and raised in Seattle 

It seems like a very long time ago
or just yesterday
depending on the day.  

Many places are gone now. 
Some still remain. 

The links in this piece are names of meaningful
places from my childhood that no longer exist.
The drawings are of some places and things that we can still visit. 

It's just a  glimpse.

'One of Many' 24x24" oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner

Happy Solstice, Friends! 

My wishes for the New Year are 
probably about the same as yours:

Our Planet is saved
and the quality of Life is improved for Us All!

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and a Better New Year!

'The Rainy Season' 12x12" oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner

The rains have come.

I put on my rain gear
and walk anyway.
