I really like this planting. I think it works well with the painting behind it too (though it's a shame it's not bigger). What's the story with the picture, did you already have it in mind when you began the composition?

Good to see you back.

Thank you Tom.
The picture came much later. Sometimes I am playing with different backdrop to see if the tree/landscape will have a natural looking effect. I am using paintings, sometimes surreal, sometimes realistic or actual photos. This way I can measure the "naturalness" of the piece. If it looks too artificial or "plastic" when pitted to the backgrounds I tend to change the whole thing.

That's a really interesting idea. This one blends right in.

Somebody just finally lifts the vale: Viola, the name attached to the old face.  Glad an "old" young master and great contributor to this site got his name back.  Only one sly suggestion, could you add: " tree on" to hide the man boobs on your shirt, that could count as violation for indecency on public forum.  Just don't want to treat you as a guess again Evil or Very Mad.  Beautiful as always, is the species native to Philippine and any relation to premna?  Welcome back. Very Happy .

:lol:Van

This tree, belongs to the hard wood, "very hard wood" family of vitex. Different from premna. but leaves can become as small as premna. most of the twisted trunks and burnt trunks were results of decades of cutting and slashing and burning by farmers.

Hi IBC.

This is the tree now after about a year. rustic and swampy, just like what I envisioned.

swampy indeed...

though not a nature i am used to seeing in my area, i still find this very natural looking...

dramatic and stylized, but natural.

You have been busy, and training the daughter as well?

Love the range of trees and shrubs you guys have on that side.
Still working on the book ?

Just going outside to burn my efforts -------

Planting filling in nicely. Great job, sir...

Thanks Lance!

...Start teaching the kids while they are still young. when Children learn how to hold the "X-box" controller or an Ipod, they won't care about bonsai anymore... maybe after some 40 years later they will gain some interest on our hobby. hehe

Weed and prep the pot for show...

Entertain the customers in the vending area.....no matter the conditions....
