This graceful bonsai sculpture is handcrafted from strands of aluminum wire twisted together and shaped to form the tree's roots, trunk, branches, and leaves. The silver wire will continue to hold its color over time. This piece depicts the upright informal bonsai style. The blue tones within the painting complement the tree's graceful shape, combining to form a striking mixed media piece. The painting was finished with multiple gloss varnish coats to accentuate the colors and luster within the painting. The tree is mechanically attached to the wood panel. A mounting bracket has been attached to the back of the piece.
