A bougie that has turned out just about how I intended. It’s a withered trunk, ume inspired style I’ve been working towards with bougainvillea, taking advantage of their propensity to rot and turning it into a positive aspect of the design. Sparse foliage, a touch of color from the flowers and bracts, more than half the trunk decayed.
It’s a brushstroke, painted on a window in time, waiting for a rainstorm to wash it away.
The pot is a commemorative one from the 2009 BSF Convention, designed by Robert Steven.

Ficus microcarpa in the style I call “tropical broom”.

A sweet, and gnarly little green mound ficus (ficus microcarpa “crassifolia”) I picked up at the Pawlidays auction @thebonsaisupply. It was originally a student/client’s tree I’d been working on with him for a few years, in my studygroup and then recently when he had me prepare all his trees for sale this October. I’d always liked it and I should have picked it up the last time I worked it (woulda been way less expensive).
So when I saw it at auction I just had to get it. I adjusted the front and rewired it #bonsai #bonsaiart #tree #art #floridabonsai (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)

I did some late season structural pruning and applied a mild organic granular fertilizer to this dwarf yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria “schillings”). #bonsai #tree #art #bonsaitree #bonsaiart #floridabonsai #americanbonsai (at Adam’s Art and Bonsai Studio and Nursery)
