DRYAD IN WINTER

Digital picture, only 16 colors, 1992, by Chris Wayan.


I've met more water spirits than dryads (tree spirits) in dreams. But then, I felt cut off from trees, compared to animals--maybe cuz I'm allergic to a lot of tree pollens. Trees seem like fashion models to me: beautiful masks, hiding their personal lives. This image tries to catch that. Beautiful but aloof.

A gauzy blue-white girl coalesces from falling snow and fallen leaves.
Yet after I drew it I had a wonderful dryad dream--the trees opened their hearts warmly to me.

Painting the problem, painting my impression of their cool indifference to us, changed it!

If it wasn't just my expectations. If they'd ever been cold at all...
