Thanks! I just finished creating my smallest detailed deadwood work so far.
I'll post the before and after and some close ups of the tree later later. I hope it is convincing enough.

Thanks guys.

...Just being naughty again. hehehe. this is my kid's over sized "mentos" can.




anyway here is the before and after some wood works. and changed of viewing angle/ front

before.
original front: no taper and movement


back: much much uglier!


during woodwork/carving












After...


I'll be working on this angle as the new front.


...I was planning to put this tree before on a rock as a penjing but after working on it, I found it too interesting to be used in a landscape design.

Small Bonsai

Mulawin is Vitex parviflora. It is also a science fiction story.
There are several Vitex species used for bonsai. They belong to the Verbena family & are related to Lantana. I did not have any success with either genus in the North.

...I can't resist putting the tree on my little slab.



for the health of the tree, roots at the back is allowed to reach the side and always feed on a tray filled with moist sand.

For me it would be the trip of a life time to visit you. I'll have to put that on my bucket list. My Father was a merchant seaman and always said it was his favorite destanation.

This is a very nice tree and you have done a great job with it. Planting it on a slab makes it a eye catching piece. The only thing I think that would improve the composistion would be to have the slab at least 25% wider with the tree planted more to the left, leaving a nice negitive space to right that would compliment the movement of the foliage. IMHO
