A peaceful tree

Post  Guest on Sun Jul 17, 2011 11:47 am

Hi IBC.
I wanted to create a humble looking minimalist image of a tree by which I can placed a peaceful sculpture or figure of "Buddha" meditating underneath the tree.







For scale here is my "apprentice" as a temporary figure...









another "apprentice", He will cry if he won't pose for the photo too, so sorry for the double post... I guess I'll be needing a huge sculpture.



...I removed the "figurines" after the photo session, before their mother who coincidentally is my wife as well comes home.

regards,
jun Smile

I like your tree and the figurines too.
Should make a very nice bonsai display with the Buddha figure added.

Thanks Ramonan!

The "garden gnomes" are happy because I let them cut/trim several of my trees today, two exoras and one ficus. total, as in total defoliation including branches. Mad Mad

Jerry,

Thanks!

It's very difficult to find the suitable "Buddha" figure. I am looking for a thin "rustic" image of "Buddha", I saw one in China but too small for this tree.

Peaceful tree indeed Jun. Good to see your kids....

The tree despite its large size having foliage at just the top looks very natural and I am sure I've seen trees like this in nature. This tree and its overall composition conveys great age and natural which I guess is what Bonsai is all about.

Cheers

These dwarves are better than Buddha. Can every other day, a new composition. True, maintenance costs are higher. Very Happy Very Happy ThumbsUp

Great tree Jun, and cute kids! I'm glad you put them in the picture, I would have guessed that tree to be about 20 inches tall!

They are the nearest "object" around that resembles a human being, for my planned Buddha scale and proportion.

Thanks Russell!

Ravi,

Thanks! Nice to hear from you again. Busy?

...That is the image I want to portray. Not all old and matured tree got full canopy. and not all the struggling trees looks like the "Literati" that we commonly see. but the essence is still there "a minimalist" effect.

Sam,

Pavel,

Great looking kids Jun. The boy looks just like you - did you take a cutting? Very Happy Very Happy
Hope they take an interest in your bonsai too.

What species of tree is it? It has a great trunk. Like Russell, I thought it was much smaller.

Hi Rob.

The boy is from a cutting the girl is from a seedling. Laughing I am not sure if their occasional total cutting of some of my trees are sign of interest or a total dislike of bonsai.

..The tree is a exactly 1 meter tall. Its a "Bluebell"- Desmodium, very fine with this style because of the fine leaves and nice twigging characteristic of the specie.

Hi Jun
peaceful indeed. I'm just wondering where you are in the Philippines? I'm from Bicol there are plenty of casuarinas in the gullies of the mayon volcano just 500 meters to a kilometer from the main road.

This has slipped my attention!
Jun, I feel that this tree of yours is the closest to my heart of all the trees you have been showing us here. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it really "transpires" calmness and humility and elegance and sobriety and maturity and, and..... I don't know and I wont try to explain the feeling....

Nice little art "statues" that God has blessed you with, Jun!
I wish you the best to your family.

Pons,

Thanks man! I am everywhere. hehehe. but my trees and garden is located in Quezon city area.
That's the best place to get casuarina, though the "leaves" are not very fine but the trunks are amazing.

jun Smile


Yvonne,

Thank you! My kids (sometimes my wife too, just kidding) are my life...then my trees are the product of my life.

regards,
jun Smile


Alexandra,

There! there! no crying now... sunny its just a tree. hehehe.
Any way the tree is in the second (or 22nd) stage now, just finished the slab for the tree and I have found the figurine suited for the design. I will just let the tree adjust first to this shallow pot condition before placing it in the final slab. I'll post it again.

I wish you well and your family too...and the whole of Greece too specially in this hard times in your country.

regards,
jun Smile

I remove the first branch on the right, as it contradicts the movement of the tree.
