My husband says this painting is boring. Perhaps it is, UNLESS YOU'RE REALLY INTO BONSAI! This is my one and only bonsai plant and I've kept it alive for 10 years. Every now and then, I get out my miniature pruning snippers and shape it up a bit. I appreciate the ART of bonsai and I think my next bonsai plant will be a deciduous tree that drops it's leaves in the winter.
