Hi Jun,
congratulations my friend! I told you it was a amazing Bonsai! And now it is going to be immortalised in Robert's book, what more can a Bonsai talent like you want! You and your tree deserve it!
And I fully understand how happy you are about this great news!
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

The smileys and clapping hands above shows so much happiness!


Hans,
Indeed my friend! I am very happy. not just for the book, but also because the bonsai people I admire the most (you included) love the tree. That is much better than winning any award.

regards,
jun Smile

Rob,
Thanks!
I'll check out the podocarpus from the book I got from you. I'll practice the technique first wit other trees. I think it will work well with Phempis acidula.

Robert,

Thanks! I'll send my advance orders of the two books. Razz bounce

You need to be a little bit patient than. The draft is more than 150 pages now, but the more I do the research and write, the more I find interesting information. The most difficult part is to find good pictures of penjing to show the five schools...

Wow...This thread has gone from good to awesome in no time. Lots of great info in here and in your Bluebell Desmodium on a slab post. To me it doesn't look like a windswept in it's current form. The only reason I say this is because, if the wind was strong enough to kill the right side of the tree, the apex should point completely the other way, right? Or am I wrong in thinking that? Jun and Robert, what do you guys think? I respect both of your opinions greatly.

Jun, you have some amazing trees. Your input in this forum is invaluable for beginners like myself. I hope Robert can find the time to continue contributing here as well. His vision and photoshop skills are extremely helpful. I can't wait to get my paws on his other books.

Have a great week you guys!!!!

Jun, I forgot to say, that I also like the way you have it styled now. To me it's a tree that grew a little funky to begin with and the top and right side died. Why, who knows but a beautiful, natural form nonetheless. It's actually my computer background for now. I hope that's ok with you. Hans and Robs virtuals both make sense to me, especially Rob's; you could go quite a few ways with this tree. It'd be an incredible honor to have a tree in Robert's book and that alone says something.

Thanks Sam.
For me, it's not a windwept at all.
What is touching me on this design is so comtemplating, the meditating figurine enhance the implicit message of the overall setting nuance. The tree's texture emphasizes the supra-natural mystery... The scale and proportion between the tree, the grass and the figurine are just perfect..plus the photographic lighting.

In Chinese, this is so called the "意境“....

Yes! Yijing (意境). It is bigger than creativity. It is closer to an artistic mood, concept, though or idea. Similar to the conceot of a 'Muse'; to think about something in a deep and serious or dreamy and abstracted way.

Very interesting Robert. This is one of the pillars of chinese art.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

But is it really windswept, I wonder?
I believe it is not.
So, you have reason to say it doesn't look like one, Sam.
Wind is not the only reason that some part of trees are killed and become deadwood-jin or deadwood-shari.
This is my opinion, a beginner's ignorant opinion. Would be interesting to read the experts.
Thank you!



edit: Looks like more of us were posting simultaneously Very Happy

Jun, really an exceptional tree!

I'm also glad you kept the long yin, to me it balances the tree.

The scale of the tree is also an illusion, it look much smaller than it actually is. its Fantastic.

I share your sentiments about penjing and are enjoying it much more these days.

Jun the tree is still fantstic, even better, Wow

I must say, I preferred, the white sand.. The black is very harsh, I think,,
when you dressed it with the white sand; I could smell the salt in the air ...from the surf......
the salt layden air that bleached the dry wood white......
I could feel the cool wind blowing in my face..

Glad you like it.

Thanks Andre,
... the black "sand" is not actually sand for aesthetic topping . It is crushed volcanic gravel, mixed with regular sand with bird guano. more on preparation of the tree for the rainy season for a lusher growth and health.
