Cliffhangers by priteeboy Cliffhangers by priteeboy
My second entry into the Exotika contest, like I mentioned in My first entry, there is bound to be artworks more realistic than this but I hope all viewers will be won over by the creativity.

I am surprised I didn't do anything like this a long time ago because I really love bonsai trees and the trees here are stunted and growing on nothing more than solid rock. It was trees like this that inspired the very first bonsai trees in China ( not Japan, it was introduced to Japan later where it came even more popular ). The trees here are all based on real trees which are all of Asian origin ( to fit the theme ) and are some of the most classic and common types of bonsai grown today. The top tree is a Japanese black pine, The red tree is a Japanese maple, The middle tree is a Trident maple, the bottom-left tree is a Chinese juniper and the flowering tree is an Azalea.

Well, it was a long comment but thanks for taking the time to read. Hope You like it.

Are we all like these trees clinging to the rock of life? We are all different but each offers its own insight, its own well being, and its own Soul. The rock connects us all....

It still tells a story though.

I guess I see too much into things and maybe that is my problem. It just came to me as I looked at the picture. I always look for more when it really isn't there. A flaw within me.

Or you could have had a very good English teacher like I did who taught you to over-analyze stuff like I sometimes do :XD:

I over-analyze life, methinks, I look at everyone from my own vantage not realizing I must take into consideration, they are Not me but instead an individual with their own views and thought.
