Artwork Description

The benevolent external dryad wonders over the prairies of the American frontier in search of souls lost in the trials of midwestern winters. Those who wish for Mary to guide lost loved ones to the otherside would place a weathered sycamore branch next to the grave. Some tales tell of settlers seeing Mary from afar just before dusk; her flowing wooded dress draping behind her with the ghosts of the less fortunate being silently led to the beyond, were rest would finally be granted to them. Mary is by far my favorite illustration i have ever done, and I have recieved more acclaim for this piece than any other.

Actually it isnt Photomanipulation, it's a painting. Thanks for the great comments, I really need to keep up on the replies.

wow, wonderfully strange and bizarre, the bottom half seems to be like a leaf of a brocoli, very bizarre and very beautiful, perfect mix of photorealism and atmosphere.

This is beautiful. I love dryads and what they stand for. You've really captured the spirit of a dryad. I love the way her hair flows and her dress. Hope to see more soon.

Art at its best.
