Dryad of Nurture

Dryad of Kinship

This dryad, or tree spirit, began one Winter when my husband and I were hiking. I came across a tree covered in turkey tail and all I could think was, "That would make such a beautiful dress!" I took some shots and drew a sketch when I got home, saving the project for warmer weather to complete it. The Dryad of Kinship is a gentle reminder of the home and family we too often forget ~ the one outside the window.
