The craft of rice growing has evolved into a different type of art for Japanese rice farmers in Inakadate.

I'm in beautiful Portland, Oregon this weekend and stumbled upon Grass Hut, a local studio, gallery, and shop run by artist Bwana Spoons and Justin "Scrappers" Morrison. Their current show with over 30 different artists, The New Birds, showcases bird-themed art with proceeds going to the Portland Audubon Society. This is a definite must-see if you're in the area but feel free to shop online too!Mathew Feyld
