Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society members at my studio. All participants learned my technique using sculptors

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

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 rockAugust 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
