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.

There were times in Mrs. Trowbridge's life when she and her family were hit by one emotional storm after another. One of their family's greatest challenges was the death of their son, Nils' best friend, Skylar. Mrs. T recalls the family's time of grief in her journal entry below. Her seashore painting recalling their times on the beach with Skylar and his family is one of my favorites of all her paintings. It seems that the emotion she was feeling at the time shone through in the glow of Pacific sunset.
