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.

Every opportunity that came Mrs. Trowbridge's way was a golden opportunity. She spent many hours at the Huckleberry Hollow library studying about her ancestry. She was fascinated with her ancestors that had lived, oh, so far away in the Mongolian Steppes. And their migration across the South Seas to South America. 

So she seized the opportunity and began a series of paintings of the flowers that occur in the South Pacific islands where her ancestors had lived. I saw many red hibiscus such as the one that Mrs. Trowbridge painted above on my last trek to the South Pacific islands. 

Stay tuned for more of Mrs. Trowbridge's lovely floral paintings in future posts on this blog.
