Itoigawa shimpaku - fall work on refined tree.

(1/3) > >>

boon:
this is a Itoigawa shimpaku that received 'members' choice award'  for small size tree (kifu) this January from Bay Island Bonsai member. 
it was shown in an old pot.  after the show it was planted in Jim Gremel pot.  first pic is before work  next is half way though and finished.  the last pic show how thin it is after work.  from the front it still looks full.  more than half of the foliage wass removed.

fall works involve thinning old interior needles, then thin the tips of the branches. hanging downward branches (below horizontal line on the bottom of the pad) and needles were also removed.

John Kirby:
Very nice work, one of my favorite trees, in BIB and out. John
