You keep buying your bonsai and pretending you're an artist and I'll keep growing and designing my own, for better or for worse, they are my own work.
Okay Bozo, show me one place, ever, where I ever claimed to be anything but at a beginner level in bonsai. Please for once, prove your words.
All you have accomplished in bonsai is writing a few checks, my eight year old daughter could do that, big deal, and she most likely has better penmanship to boot.
I'll match my actual contributions to the bonsai community against yours any day, you keep writing the checks, I'll keep making sure that the checks you write get larger every year.
Leave out the insults, personal attacks, and other filler and everyone wins in a debate. At worst a person reconfirms their beliefs, at best they add to what they already knew, a good debate is a win/win situation for all, even those who don't participate. The only losers are those who try and stop the sharing of thoughts and knowledge.
Since Mr. Kimura was invoked, how do you think it is that he can afford to be a full-time bonsai professional?
This ticks me off, Will, primarily because it is so totally backward from the things you claim to advocate.
Nothing will advance the art in the US as fast as the presence of enthusiastic, financially-able collectors who can and do create a market for high-end material and expert artists' care.
I'm inclined to agree with Redwing here.
