|Jeff discusses ways to improve ACBS trees from past shows|
Jeff also took the time to make a brief study of pictures from our past shows, posted on our gallery site http://picasaweb.google.com/akroncantonbonsai He pointed out issues to consider when placing a bonsai on a stand-- off center with the energy moving to the longer side. He discussed pot arrangements that might improve the character of some trees, as well as other design issues, such as
older trees having more rounded crowns, and a rule of thumb on the direction that the crown faces: if the tree begins by bending to the left, the tree look more balanced if the crown bends to the left.
Thanks again to Jeff helping again to improve the skills of our club members.
