Field maple bonsai

This is my Acer campestre... it's been in training for just a year and already I am very pleased with its progress. I have high hopes for this tree... the leaves will reduce in size as the branch ramification is developed. This year I have concentrated on rough branch placement and extensive carving of the trunk to give it the apearance of a grand old oak. The pot is not its final home and I will hopefully have one made to suit it.
