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.

The fluid nature of Mrs. Trowbridge's watercolor paintings were an ideal media to capture the vivid colors of the Quinault Rain Forest where she once lived. Below is the finished painting that she created to memorialize her departed mother. Mother Trowbridge exerted a great influence on her daughter, Violet. It was Mother Trowbridge who taught Violet how to scribe, and to become accomplished in the art of watercolor.

Don't miss the new movie poster on my new blog. This time The Toad takes on the role of Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The poster and t-shirt is available for sale on the blog.
