There Are No Rules When Building A Bonsai For Yourself
When we talk about bonsai styles, we inevitably have an “other” category.
This can be anything, literally anything, that you think would look good.
You could build a Christmas scene, recreate something you’ve seen in person like a tree in a city sidewalk, you can create a group of multi-trunk tree’s on 1 giant rock, or something altogether unique.
Remember, bonsai is first and foremost an art. That means there are no rules.
If you’re a bonsai pro building trees for the general public to buy, well then you gotta keep it to the basics. Create the trees that 90% of the people will enjoy.
But if you’re in this for yourself — to help you feel relaxed and calm, to add beauty to your home, your yard and your life, do what makes you happy.
THERE ARE NO RULES!
Do you want a tree that has a ton of deadwood and barely anything living? Do it.
Or a bonsai that is planted in a cut wine bottle? Do it.
Design your idea of beauty, and you’ll create your own personal masterpiece.
Now, for the pictures 😃
