"Part of a series of dryads (tree spirits). The Dryad of Nuture is a mother and a guide. She is sustenance and warmth, home and hearth. Ring the bell. The door is always open. (Behind the scenes: That robin ~ what a ham! ~ as if it knew I was photographing it.)" Elisabeth Ladwig

"Dryad of Nurture" features a whimsical scene where a woman with flowing hair is standing in a pastoral landscape. The woman's dress is unique, made from leaves that wrap around her body, cascading to the ground, blending her lower half with the grassy field. She is turned away from the viewer, with her right arm extended upwards, her hand gently holding a small bird that is interacting with her. The background has a grey, cloudy sky that gives the image a dreamlike, surreal atmosphere. The overall composition showcases a connection between the woman and nature, as well as a sense of freedom. The image is rich with textures and has a color palette that balances the green of the leaves with the muted tones of the environment.
