Here is a ponderosa that I picked up from Oregon Bonsai last year. According to Jason, it had been kicking around quite a while, and had been on their website from the beginning, but no one had much interest in it. I decided to take pity on it, and see if it could be made into an acceptable shohin, even though the needles were a bit long. I worked on it at a Walter Pall workshop, but never got too excited about it. Here is the original picture from the Oregon Bonsai web site, and pictures after the initial styling.
