Pine Update

Here is a pine that I have been working on for 3 years now. It has come a very long way in a short period of time. Many of the "Big Names" in bonsai that have seen this in person have all really loved this tree, a few even bowed, lol!!

Here it is in the middle of August 2009. I needle pruned the bottom 1/2 of the tree at the end of that day.
Front before any work

Right Side before any work
After needle prunning and no wire. This is the beg. of Sept now. It sat on the bench for a few weeks before I got back to it.
Partially wired and I changed the front by a few degrees.

Partially wired, back

Back finished!
Front finished with the sun shining

From the patio. I will move this to a taller pole in the garden soon.
