Dryads are female nature spirits (nymphs) in Greek mythology.
They're associated with trees, especially the oak. Though long-living, some dryads die if you chop down their tree.

Can’t believe this one doesn’t have any comments yet! I love the vibrancy of the green of her hair - it really compliments the warm brown of the trunk, and makes her stand out from the green background. Beautiful job 2

I have the same picture on another online art gallery and it hadn’t got any comments there, too, for weeks. I guess the picture’s cursed. 12"

:-) Anita Schmidt Pabst replies: "thanks! no, it didn’t take that long. I cheated a bit. It was quite enervating, though. 12"
