The Language of Roses by DimeSpin The Language of Roses by DimeSpin
When Handel was just a baby, her mother died near a human couple's summer home, still carrying her, and the humans found her. They decided to keep the little baby Dryad, and they raised her and became the only family she'd ever known. While she was left in their summer home, the couple died in a car accident. Young Handel was forgotten in the home, the couple never came back.

The humans didn't really know anything about Dryads, so they weren't able to tell her how important it was that she go and find a tree to bond to and what the signs were that it was time. When the time came, she refused to leave the house, so in desperation, her body bonded to the roses just outside the house. The spell in her body has encouraged the growth of the roses until they completely overgrew the house.

Later, the other Dryads contacted her, but it was a while before she let them talk to her.

Your paintings... agh, so much talent! It's like rennaissance stuff, very Rembrandt here, and the other one where you did a portrait of her face.

This is absolutely gorgeous. The color palate really makes this piece for me, with the contrasting light, faded warm colors against rich, dark cool colors. It's just splendid. The story behind this really makes the piece. Poor girl.
