The value there is in silence ------------- to contemplate

Post  Khaimraj Seepersad on Mon Nov 26, 2012 11:24 am

Now don't get me wrong I like to look at the very dramatic, and life in death, the extreme bonsai designs.

BUT the eye tires of such high [ at times melodramatic ] drama very quickly.

Take a hint from Oil Painting at the Old Master level [ Begins with Da Vinci ends with Goya - lets be clear ] the dramatic and shocking give way to peaceful and contemplative.
Small wonder Madonnas can remain for a long in the memory.

I am saying this because Bonsai often ends up being Barnum and Bailey, it is as though everyone got hit by lightning, termites or were run over repeatedly by a truck / snow and whipped by sand laiden winds.

The idea is contemplation, in order to gain any real substance. The longer the viewer looks, and then looks in their memory, the greater the effect of the tree/landscape.
Later.

Wow bonsai sounds like fun in the West Indies. Your writing is impressive, like a poem almost
