Done for the contest "Girl with a Flower" hold at DeviantArt by Gabbyd70 .
This was a pretty good excuse to paint flowers again, and practice a little with faces, which I always need. It's not very clear if the girl is really human, but she tries to give the observer this illusion, at least. She's also not intended to be beautiful or perfect (asymmetries are intentional), but misterious and probably dangerous.

The flower she's connected with is the Water Hyacinth, a very invasive species which, while cleaning the waters where she grows in, accumulates the worse poisons...
