Mystic beauty

This was amongst the fisrt of my attempts to try my hand on canvas paintings. This was done with acrylic paints and I still haven't had a chance to try on the oil paintings, but I'm happier with acrylic paints :) and I love her eyes.... reminds me of cindrella's eyes.. the ever lovely and beautiful one's :) ... I actually love her hair flower too ;)
