'Hopeful Hanna' 10x10" oil pastel; Kathleen Faulkner
I am grateful for the opportunities that I have received.
I am sharing some highlights with you.

April was a banner month:
 'Craft Island', an oil pastel, was accepted into the permanent collection at the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner. 

My ring, 'Apartment Complexity' was published in Metalsmith magazine.

Two works, an oil and oil pastel,  'Almost Home' and East of Here' were loaned to the American Embassy in Pristina, Kosovo.

Then, September offered me a spot in a show to start out the new year
 at Harris Harvey Gallery in Seattle  

December came with the honor of having my work represented on the kiosk at the entry to Dog Woods, Guemes Island.

Despite my good fortune, this year had it's challenges 
yet I am grateful for every moment!

I am hopeful for the future.

Here's to a new year of wonderful possibilities
and a wish 
May we become the people that
make this world a better place for all
living beings.

They wait in silence.
patient and stately.


The bugs never know what hit them.

a precise and elegant wildflower
fragile and shy
They always bring up memories
that always make me smile.
