I did this painting a while ago from a sketch made on a trip in northern BC two years ago. I enjoy sketching as much as the painting itself. It's a great focus.
I've made a few benches for displaying my bonsai. They're made of slabs of live-edge cedar and maple. I'm enjoying having the trees at a proper height for viewing and a comfortable height for working as well. In the background of the bottom photo you can see a latticed arbor ( a rose once grew over it). I used the uprights as a base for two smaller benches by removing the rotten lattice and cutting down the posts.
