bonsai concrete slab workshop RMBS
May 2022
I held my first ever bonsai concrete slab workshop for
Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society members at my studio. All participants learned my technique using sculptors
wire and concrete and made a small piece to take home



My new bonsai painting was inspired by bonsai master Ryan Neil's and his Sierra Juniper# 8 at Bonsai Mirai.

Here is Ryan Neil's review of the painting. "Linda's interpretation of our work touches on the abstract form in a way other interpretations haven't. We find it inspiring and informative how creative minds further convey the interest of the trees we put our hands on." - Ryan Neil, Bonsai Mirai


Here are some of my favorite bonsai trees from the artists at the 52'nd Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society show at Denver Botanic Garden  September 2021

spruce bonsai in rock
Here is my humble contribution to the RMBS bonsai show. I am just a 1 year rookie , so to be in the same company as these bonsai artists was truly inspiring. My dad cut the cherry wood just 2 days before the show as I entered at the last minute.

tam juniper bonsai in rockAAugust 2021. This is a Tam juniper bonsai ( bought from Home depot) that I pruned, wired and planted into this rock, covering the roots with moss. Tam junipers are excellent bonsai tree for beginners.  I have done some extreme things to them and have yet to kill one. You can take a cutting of one stick it in the ground and it will grow roots

I love this old bristlecone pine in Pikes Forest Colorado. The twists of the trunk are amazing and the natural jins are inspiring. 07/2021

This is one of my wild bristlecone trees that I collected in fall of 2020. He is still in his training pot. You want to move slow with these guys, one change per per year. He had a stunning 2" of new apical growth this spring. Woohoo


 spruce bonsai in rock   ferns in bonsai rock
May 2021 My latest bonsai obsession. I planted this Engelmann spruce yamadori in this pocketed rock. The back shady side of the rock was perfect for some wild ferns. Engelmann spruce make excellent bonsai with their short needles and tolerance for a range of conditions
