Dryad dreaming – The October Component of the Month reveal.

FaerieCon is less than a week away. All my thoughts, energy, work this week and next are of the Fae variety. So when I sat down a week or so ago to work with this lovely focal from Karen of Starry Road Studio… 

Dryad Dreaming

My first idea was all crazy complicated and it involved antique images and resin and mixing the media all up! The piece asked for simple. I wanted to make the most of the center opening. All I could hear in my head was a little voice asking: “What would a dryad wear?”

The focal to me conjures up the patterns of concentric tree rings, but it has a spiral as well. The warm brown/iron oxide color was perfect. The hole in the tree—- who lives there—- friend and companion to the dryad—–owl!

I love the result, I like the color palette of woodsy browns and greens. I would wear it long, and fiddle with the dangles all day.

    I like how you saw a hole in a tree in the disc and played off that! I didn’t even see that in the piece until you mentioned it, but it’s perfect. The owl is such a nice touch.
