Overlapping Hobbies/Artwork

Hey all!

I was just struggling with some insomnia and I realized I saw this beautiful tree last year, and I desperately wanted to share it, and then I realized that I MADE A DARN VIDEO OF IT!

One of my hobbies is building and flying FPV UAVs (aka drones), and last year I went out to the Columbia Gorge where the wind is fierce and steady, and on my way home, I found this beautiful tree in the middle of a field just as the sun set. Be warned, if you get motion sick, you may not want to watch. I was also flying in pretty heavy winds, so it may be a bit much for sensitive viewers.

I’d love to hear how your hobbies and artwork overlap with your bonsai practice.


I actually got started in bonsai when I created a couple of sculptures. Of course, then I learned all about what was wrong with my “trees.”
Of course, now that working with real bonsai, who has time for other hobbies?!


Very very nice. You clearly have an artists eye! Probably two :slight_smile:
