Yen,

Can you post some pictures of the sides? I will like to see how the San shue (water line) flows.

Kind regards,
Jose Luis

Looks good, I like its curves. Can you expose where its grafted, it is a graft right? Jrod, by waterline, do you mean the live vein?

Most of the tree is all alive, I just have not peeled the bark off. You can see some small pieces of brown through the white-that whole thing is alive. The tree is not grafted at all, that is CA Juniper foliage.

1st styling w/ Boon. Comments, suggestions, virtual s welcome. I plan on root grafting and eventually removing the top section to get rid of the straight base.

Very nice. The deadwood looks very natural to me and not overworked at all. Did you polish it in some way? Nice work with the foliage as well.

Here's a clumsy virtual. I'm sure there would be other front possibilities once you shorten the lower trunk. And another pot too...

Nice reworking of the shari and branches.
The bi-color trunk is reminiscent of the wildfires they have been having. I like it.
With time this Cal Juniper will be stunning.
Someone please give Harry and myself napkins. Drool doesn't look good...

I am with Jose with the more pictures wanted mentality. From the chosen angle it seems the opposite view may be more intriguing or either of the sides.

Well although I realize that this will be a 'better' bonsai if shortened as proposed, I'm really kind of enjoying the top heavy top knot look for now. It reminds me of trees I saw skiing in Telluride last winter that had their tops literally twisted into knots like this by the elements. It was quite unbelievable - the kind of trees you would never try to recreate literally as bonsai because people would say that no tree ever grew like that.

Yenling,
Did Boon suggest leaning it to the right? I think leaning it a bit might help shorten the trunk visually. The motion of the trunk make me think this also.
Nice tree!
