Here's a somewhat blurry picture of a pencil sketch I did tonight .I'm collaborating with a friend on a potential children's book.

I was out on Bainbridge Island getting reference photos and ran across this little place called Laughing Crow Farm. It is a cool area of Bainbridge where the folks who own sections of what used to be strawberry farms refuse to sell out to the developers. Even though they could get millions for the land ,they choose to live the simple life of farming. I met Gerald who owns the Bainbridge vineyards and winery who was nice enough to let this weird artist guy walk his fields , and Akio, still working in his eighties, who farmed strawberries on this land before the Japanese concentration camps in the U.S. Read "Snow Falling on Cedars" and you can get an idea of what it was like for the Japanese living in America before and after world war two. ( My apologies if I spelled names wrong)

I'm revisiting this painting on my blog for three reasons
- I like it alot, I think it is more impressive in person , you can see the snow coming down alot better.
- My camera got stolen at Central Market when I ran in to get some cucumber rolls for breakfast at the sushi stand. I can't download my new paintings.
- This painting is available now in a giclee reproduction for $70.00 including shipping. The image measures 10x18 in. original SOLD
