Is your avatar a pic of one of your trees or someone elses?? It looks like a tree in Bill Valvanis's collection. He puts out Bonsai International magazine out of Rochester NY. He was my teachers teacher. I was into bonsai for around 10 yrs & finally had to give it up after having kids & well, losing my arm didn't help any. Had around 70-80 trees when I called it quits. Sold them off & gave a few away to relatives, still get to work on one now & then.
