"Part of a series of dryads (tree spirits). This dryad, or tree spirit, is the essence of Springtime, nourished by April showers ~ a symbol of hope and of imminent growth and expansion. Her creativity is contagious, as one tiny particle of life awakens the next." Elisabeth Ladwig

"Dryad of Renewal" features a surreal and dreamlike scene dominated by a female figure standing in a grassy field under a brooding sky with ominous clouds. Her stance showcases movement, with the flow of her white dress captured in the breeze. Her head is obscured by a parasol made of tightly clustered white flowers, from which stem long, thin branches that seem to extend wildly in all directions. Adding to the surrealism are a variety of elements that are floating and scattered around her head - more white flowers, as well as a few dark birds, ascending into the sky. The overall atmosphere is ethereal and open to interpretation, blending elements of nature with a touch of fantasy.
