Oleander after SBA workshop

We had an annual bonsai and suiseki exhibition of Slovak bonsai association last weekend. It was held in an old monastery in Hlohovec. Free workshop for our members has been run with our special guest Tomaž Kovšca and his apprentice Gašper Gabrijel from TORA international bonsai school, Ljubljana, Slovenia. I was lucky that I found time to style my old oleander. The tree was completely defoliated and some branches were cleaned and wired. We decided to respect the main character of the tree, at this time :). Both two subtrunks were preserved. I am really happy with the result. Of course, a lot of work and improvement is still before me. Thank you Tomaž and Gašper for you help and valuable advices!

Maroš, thanks for the pictures !
