Hi everybody, I'm a complete beginner to the art of bonsai and for my first tree I bought a japanese bloodgood maple which I thought had an interesting trunk shape. I wanted to ask for some opinions on styling from those with a more experienced eye than me before doing anything to it. A couple things I've noticed is the widening of the base from some large roots, which is more noticeable from some angles than others. There is also is an inverse taper coming from an upward pointing branch starting about 8 inches up the trunk. What would be some directions I could take this tree? Any help is appreciated, thanks.
