The Cherished Bonsai
The Cherished Bonsai"
The bonsai tree not only shows beauty and strength, but also represents peace, balance and harmony. A gift from those who represent loyalty, love, and respect.
Painting this piece, was all from my heart and soul, committing 2 months towards letting her evolve and come to life, which is evident when you view every mm across the canvas. I start by sculpting the tree, by adding layers and layers to form relief 3D off the canvas. I then carve in detail of grains, notches and form bark like texture. I move to the background of beautiful subtle features in whites, cream, golds, grey and dark olive. I change from larger brushes to the very fine detail 1-3mm tip in size painting leaf by leaf, over 150 leaves of beautiful patterns and colours. Finally I add more layers and colour to the sculptured tree's curvey strong body and dancing limbs connected to all her characters shown in her leaves. I move down to her lifesource of roots beautifully drifting over the bowl's edge, downward feeding in from its environment. This painting is not just a Bonsai but a representation of a wonderful woman who shows strength and beauty.
