Continuing with our current before and after series…
Juan Andrade served as a long term apprentice at Bonsai Aichien nursery in Japan. We’ve been following Juan’s progress for years (here’s a Bark post from 2012 that features a tree of his). Juan posts regularly on facebook, which is where we found these photos.
This pine has a bunjin feel, but I think the foliage is too lush to qualify as bunjin. No matter what you call it, it's a good bonsai wit a lot of character. In case you are wondering what Bunjin is, there's a good discussion here.
It's not in a pot yet, but if you look at the before photo above, you can see that it has come a long ways in the right direction
