Part of a series of dryads, or tree spirits. The Dryad of Kinship 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 my favorite of the dryad series. It is a gentle reminder of the family we too often forget ~ the one right outside the window.
