This is a Black Pine that I styled recently.  I took the picture with my camera phone so not too great.  Hope you guys like it.

I've been working on this tree since 2006, here.  Cleaned it up and took a photo for an upcoming club meeting.

Here are some shots of my large informal upright Korean hornbeam. It was imported in the 80s and I've been working it for a few years. It got this beautiful Nick Lenz pot this year in time for the tree to be in the 2nd US National Bonsai Exhibition.

The foliage shots are recent; the mushroom shots are from earlier in the Fall. When I saw this year's color I wished the National Bonsai exhibition had been in the Fall...

Here is another one of my RJM that was styled a few years ago. Growing well. Andy Smith collected it .
