    I saw you at Al Swanson day. My children loved seeing your paintings and they were excited to get the calendar signed. What a great role model of talent and passion. I look forward to a time when we can buy your prints.

    Hi Carrie,
    It was pleasure meeting with you, Jeremiah, and Elijah yesterday and thank you for your kind words. I am glad that they were excited about the signed calendar.
    p.s. We can sell prints of images NOT used for the 2015 OSH calendar now. Please email us at if you are interested in purchasing these prints. The images used for OSH calendar can be sold after Dec. 31, 2015 due to the exclusive contract with OSH.
    Joji, Ken’s farther.

    I am a special education teacher and will be sharing your OSH calendar with my students as well as your inspirational story!
    Take care, Lou Flores

    hello Ken, We live in north Idaho and there is a very interesting train here in an amusement park called Silverwood. My sons and grandkids have worked there a lot. The train is a 1915 steam locomotive, they say it was called “old # 7” I don’t know if that is still what they call it. It has a very interesting history of running on different kinds of fuels, in different locations. I can’t seem to find any info on it., one time when we road it, the attendant gave a complete detailed talk about its history. If you are ever in N Idaho I’m sure you would enjoy talking to the engineers and reading its history, which I’m sure is in the railway station. The park is only open during the summer, as we have a lot of snow in the winter.
    We enjoyed your OSH calendar which my husbands sister, who lives in San jose, sent to him for his birthday. We have several OSH calendars from years back, all about trains with great pictures.
    We enjoy them all. Best luck in your future, Geraldine

      Dear Geraldine,
      Thank you so much for your encouraging words and interesting story of “old #7”. I hope to visit and ride the train in the future.

    Hello Ken,

    I do not know the ins and outs of a trains mechanism, but I can certainly enjoy a ride on one (and I’ve been on many trains since living in China for 25 yrs) and I also appreciate good art. My favorite of yr works I think must be the cover of the OSH 2016 calendar in the forest. Makes me want to run out and take a train to wherever! I also love the realism U portray in the “Reversing into Chehallis”. I had to look carefully to convince myself that it was only a painting and not a photo. The Lord God has given you a wonderful gift. May you continue to use this gift for His glory!

      Dear D,
      Sorry for this belated response and thank you so much for your encouraging words for Ken’s art work. Yes, we also love “Rounding the Horseshoe Curve” and “Reversing into Chehalis”. We visited these locations as family trips. Ken took hundreds of photos of the locomotives from which he chose one to draw. “Chehalis” actually includes his mother videotaping the train from the station.
      Joji, Ken’s father.

    Hi Ken,
    Thanks for your wonderful art. I woke up during the night thinking about a birthday present for my fiance, and your railroad art jumped into my mind. He loves trains and has never seen your work. As I write this, he is picking out three train prints, and having a hard time deciding! I think he’s going to choose the train that he engineered for a day last year (also a birthday present) at Big Trees, your “Sonora at the Depot” print. I’ll order them as soon as he gives me his list!

    • joji says:

      Hi Deborah,
      Wow, thank you for thinking Ken’s art for the present! So glad to know that your fiance likes trains and Ken’s arts. Will get back to you on your order shortly.
