PAINTING SERIES: BONSAI TREES.
News of a dramatic Bonsai heist in Japan caught our attention on February 2019. This slightly cheesy sentence in the New York Times article reporting the news was the inspiration for this week's painting series: "Keeping a bonsai tree is as much an art as making a painting of one."
❓ Why did the writer use such analogy?
❓ Are there many examples of bonsai tree paintings throughout art history?
❓ Is painting a bonsai tree really as hard as raising and caring for one?
❓ Is the writer also a painter?
