My back is a little bit better today, but I am still not able to work on any tree for a while. So I decided to take some close up pictures of the beautiful deadwood on my Pinus uncinata.
I can look at it over and over again and get totally lost in the beautiful random patterns and the 50 shades of grey on this wooden history book of this very old tree! This is just the thing I like to see in a yamadori, the wonderful beauty of nature! This wonderful main focal point of this tree should only be enhanced by the artist, to bring out the best of both into one Bonsai. 🙂
Hans this I dedicate to your tree.
This is from my heart what I saw in your tree.
It is yours now forever and ever.
” The Whisper of the Wee Tree”
Come closer my friend and hear me speak
My old and gnarled bark is just the outside of me
Many tales can be told of how old I really am
But the life of me runs strong and deep
The battle from seed to what you see
tells the world the story of me.*
Hope you like them?
Hans van Meer.
