Title: JRP & JBP Shohin
Post by: JRob on July 15, 2014, 09:07 PM
Evening All, While at the setup for the Nashville Show I spotted these two the minute I entered the room on a table in Bill Valavanis sales area. I got back early the next morning and waited for his arrival. The minute he walked in I had them both put away for me. Bill is great and if you have not seen a copy of his "Classic Bonsai Art - A Half Century of Bonsai Study" you need to pick it up for your library and study. It is great. Bonsai is definitely his passion. I spent time with him whenever I meet him at a show and I always learn so much just talking to him. He is both gracious and informative. Both are imported trees. The first is a Japanese Red Pine and the second a Japanese Black Pine. JRob
