Sunday, February 22nd
Room 101, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park
Mrs. Sharadha Gupta was a surprise speaker for this month. Mrs. Gupta is currently visiting from India where she is the author of two bonsai/gardening books, has won numerous gardening awards, and has been featured in regional and national magazines and television. She demonstrated the assembly of a diorama designed to hang on a wall. She painted the back of the diorama frame to simulate the sky. Various small bonsai and mosses were then wired into the frame creating a pleasant country scene. This technique can be scaled up in size as shown in Mrs. Gupta’s backyard where a ten foot long diorama graces a garden wall.
Bring in any trees you have concerns about as we have knowledgeable members available in the Bonsai Help area to the right of the stage in room 101.
If you would like to display part of your bonsai collection during our meetings in room 101, including those who want their bonsai to be critiqued by our in-house experts before being displayed at our spring or fall show, please see Dan Sola or Abe Far.
Reminder: Bring items for the benefit drawing and food to share with the other members.
