P. sylvestris Tweak

Post  AndyRutledge on Fri Oct 15, 2010 11:23 pm

I posted the initial styling of my new Scots pine, but unsatisfied with the details I've tweaked the branches and shoots a bit. Notably, the main left branch has now become 1/2 jin, to give it less emphasis; for the tree's energy is clearly moving toward the right.



This (above) is the tree as I received it.



This is the revised styling.

Andy, it is / was a graceful tree before / now and visually extremely pleasing to the eye.
Memories of balmy nights with breezes and gently moving coconut trees,
of women swaying to softly played music.
Thanks for showing, much appreciated.
Khaimraj

This is what I think of when I look at your pine.

Zephyrus cools night rolling waves.
Moonlight whispers o'er foam maned horses.
Gracefully steps kiss sand - Shelagh.

Or if you prefer -

Midnight, on the wattttteeeer, I saaaawwww the oceans daughter,
Walking on a wave she came,
Steering as she called my name,
And I can't get it out of my head ..... ELO.

I read your post before seeing the picture. My first thought was "...why would he just want the foliage to dominate one side?..." Then I saw the results of your tweaking and now I know. Your pine reminds me of the Spirit of a Geisha standing on a mountain... like she is watching over her charges. Lovely pine! Lovely movement!
Salut, Todd

Thanks Khaimraj. Wonderful. Here is the best I can do on short notice...

A century. A memory.
Ambition will’ed toward the sun.
A quaking thrust, a revelry,
The ancient crag whence pulse begun
Yet long behind; but whispered now.
The shoots enthralled by tendrils spun.
Beguiling threads that weave somehow
A parody of false ambition.
--A.R.

Kind regards,
Andy
