The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

Saturday, April 25, 2009


Mrs. Trowbridge spent considerable time writing witty verses for her children and, later, her grandchildren. You'll note she abandoned her painterly style and used a simpler line and wash method for illustrating her verses.

She wrote in her journal that verses would descend upon her at the most unusual times; in the theater, while having tea with friends, or while preparing dinner. She would even be awakened in the middle of the night with a verse that would come to her in a dream.

Would you like to join me on the painting safari of a lifetime, to one of earth's most beautiful places? We leave on January 10, 2010...Click here for info.

That is really cool. some one you posts this for the woman is really nice. I think that stroy should be a book or someting. You know, for little kids. That would be awesome. Maybe you could do that for her. I like things that rhyme. So I'm a sucker for that story.
Check out this blog;
it has poems and junk.
Totaly to the heart. by the way I'm gonna try to follow your blog. Yay you :)

What fun! I think I'll take some dip please!

I like both of Violet's styles, and each has a place in the Chronicles and beyond.
