Amazing work by Sahar!

The last picture is most beautiful in my opinion as it gives kind of 3D look in the painting

As far as the colors are concerned, I have become an Acrylic-savvy artist. I hardly work in oils anymore although in past I have some of my most favorite paintings done in oil. I have restricted myself to acrylics because they are quick, plus much more vibrant than oils. For the base of the paintings I have been using not only plain canvas or paper, but a wide range of other surfaces, for instance- used coke cans, printed fabric, worn out records (lds), vegetable cutting boards, shoes, bags, jackets, jewelry, actual skin (inspired by an American artist Alexa Meade) and walls.

Indeed, it's got a nostalgia about it, even here the colour spots on the shirt contrast with the lights coming from the ceiling.
