Island Tree is a bit of a fanciful approach to bonsai. Although this one is not set in a pot or plate I started with that concept in mind, setting up an isolated tree with grounding accents all floating in water. I still see it as a self-contained ecosystem much like bonsai. Lagerstroemia or crape myrtle is the subject for this painting and I chose a simple color pallet for my first exploration of this theme, but I already see several with blossoming canopy and more unusual ground designs for my next. For anyone who has tried the art of bonsai it is not as easy as one might think. Patience, knowledge and attention are all that is required; somehow I have missed the boat. This is my way of dealing with my lack of bonsai skills.
