Bonsai tree:Lonesome Maple

This is an image I’ve wanted to create for many years, just waiting for the right bonsai tree I guess, and my friend Peter Warren had this beautiful , elegant, maple for sale. It was perfect for the image I had in mind, although maybe not so old, yet, it has a wonderful nebari, very elegant trunkline, needs more work on the branching and ramification, and the trunk texture needs ageing, it just needs time, and care, to mature.

I first saw this image in John Naka’s book several years ago, I love solitary trees in nature and this is my attempt to recreate the feeling of space.
