The First Minnesota Stone Show

Post  Norma on Fri Sep 09, 2011 7:30 am

Greetings,

Our Minnesota Bonsai Society had its yearly judged show last week and opened up a corner for our first stone display. The stones were new to many at the State Fair and seemed to be well received. Our judge was Jim Doyle and did a great job of assessing each stone and its daiza.
I will show a few of the stones ; please feel free to express your thoughts.

Thanks... Peter and Yvonne,

I'm glad you liked the picture stone ... Peter you called the stand inappropriate. Could you make a suggestion for a better stand.

Yvonne, we were allowed to show just two stones so I chose the hut and the woman with a blanket to display. I have many finished viewing stones so it was difficult to choose but I thought these would resonate with the public and they are some of my oldest collected stones!

Best regards,
Norma

I think dark, subtle, contrast higher. Distracting. sunny
