Just a beginning, but wanted to share. I got this one at the botanical garden's plant sale. I has a way to go so I kinda over potted it to give it some leg room. What do you think?

I love the tallest trunk and how it was angled in the first photograph. As for the two smaller trunks, I would like to style them to complement that tall trunk.
Here's a rough sketch, and it's just one idea...

Thanks, Thumbless. Especially for the sketch, I think that is a great direction for it. I will let it rest for a couple of weeks and reposition the limbs.

UPDATE:

Took these today while I was working outside, my contorted quince has finally decided to bloom. I really like how the buds are pink on the outside and open to white, kinda cool. The rest of the tree needs some work, the pot is not that great, and it needs to be cut back. What do you think?

Sorry for the crappy background, put it together in a hurry trying to beat the rain.
