Well, over the weekend I was able create a logo for the website that I am quite happy with and think will work well with the site. Stupidly, I left it on my flash drive at home, so will upload in a couple of hours time.
First problem I’ve encountered … is my time. I’ve simply bitten off more then I can chew at the moment, offering my services (free) to a few worthy causes (more info later), which has slowed my progress on this site to a crawl.
Obviously, my priorities are my Bonsai, and I have created the site to help document that progess! So, my first related post will be my excited news that I have put my name down for a Bill Valavanis workshop on the 26th of October. If you are interested, make sure to contact the Bonsai Society of WA (or the relevant club in your state) for more information. The workshop I will be attending is on Cascade style, however he will be here for two workshops (second is on Literati) and a Interactive Critique.
My first step for the workshop will be getting myself some decent stock! Cascade’s have never really tickled my fancy (granted I’ve not been learning long), as I do not see them naturally all that often in my area. That hasn’t stopped me from signing up though, and I’m sure that after the course, I’ll have a different opinion of Cascades. In the end, its developing my skills, and that is the key.
So off it will be to the Bonsai Emporium this weekend or next to see what stock I can get my hands on for a reasonable price. Expect some pictures soon!
Thats it for now, I will continue to upgrade the site until it is functioning as I’d like, as at the moment I’m just running this ‘bare bones’ whilst I close off my other projects. Expect more updates soon!
