Cascade larch display

Hi,
Set up a new alcove display today.
Early winter cascade larch.



Your thoughts are much appreciated.

I'm not educated enough to make a formal comment on the display but could you post some other photos of the tree as it looks very unusual and unique.
Cheers Graham

Konnichiwa IMHO
Just Friendly Advise offered, as expert on nothing.
Scroll about 9" higher, without trees in it, seen as repetitious.
Moon only, Rain Clouds or even Flying Geese, seasonal
Bonsai and table moved to right about 9", better spacing.
Accent of dry grass, miniature reeds, seed pod,
or one split open dwarf pomegranate fruit,
half eaten... Basketball



I know no stone talk here, but were talking about display, right!

Thank you for sharing. Many pretty elements in this display.

I echo the sentiments of Mr. Stonener. You have the space to make the flow a little wider, to move your accent to the left a little...

There was a display in a Japanese book that discussed about paintings specifically.
I see a painting, that has four things in it.
Moon, Pagoda?, Large Tree (Cedar?) and then possibly a bird? in the lower right hand corner...
All of this busyness in the painting (at least to me) makes me look first at the painting.
This is too crowded of a scene. Without really seeing in detail, the bird looks like a Kingfisher.
Kingfisher is usually associated with the summer season.
If you put a tansaku of a very simple monochrome of a snowcovered Mt. Fuji, then I think it would pull the viewer's eye more to the bonsai and tell your winter season at the same time.

Same with the accent...It seems too large (or at least I am accustomed to seeing much smaller accent plantings) Again, I found myself looking at the accent before the bonsai.

let's look at some positives.....the stand, jitta and scroll are very High class looking individually and work well together collectively.

the placement of the companion plant on the jitta leads the eye into the space toward the bonsai. Nice...

I agree about scroll subject matter, and spacing etc

maybe next time the larch is repotted, i'd suggest considering having the trunk coming directly out of and over a corner.....

Thank-you Jeremy for posting Smile

I think it helps to see nice sized pics of the individual elements. thanks

The horizontal pic is a little too dominant IMHO and I believe distracts from the tree. I feel a smaller verticle one with some height
would be a better match.

maybe some geese in formation would compliment and give us a sense of fall or winter. Even a clouded, blustery moon might also help with season.

This is helpful so I appreciate your continued sharing Smile
