So, can the true bonsai artist find inspiration in so humble a bit of nature as this poor suburban creature?

Certainly, youth has it's own fresh beauty that is often overlooked in bonsai. http://www.artofbonsai.org/forum/viewto ... 8808b8c066

I'm sure that's right, Attila. It relates well to bonsai, if not to other artforms.

Taking a critical look at the image Chris posted: I observe a few thin, short branches below the first major branches. A critical look at Walter Pall's bonsai will often yield a similar image... a few thin branches that appear to have escaped the shears.
Walter has shown exceptionally good observation skills and strength of character to allow those branches to remain on his trees. The fly in the face of bonsai orthodoxy. In fact, they may well be one of the first things it would be necessary to consider, or perhaps even codify, if one were to set out to style a tree in Naturalistic style.
