Paintings of Modern Chinese artist Xia Li

Investing in art and paintings can be very lucrative, especially if the artist becomes famous later , expires and a limited number of his or her artworks are available.China has a large number of rich businessmen , and they are increasingly investing in Chinese artworks as they are relevant to them. One of the more popular artists in China is Xia Li who lived from 1871 to 1937 and produced a large number of paintings which are being auctioned at art galleries worldwide . His paintings provide a rare glimpse of the lifestyle of people in China about a century ago, the clothes, mannerism and relationship between people in pre communist China.

The paintings of Xia Li are mainly line drawings with a brown, grey or white background, with relatively few bright colours being used. Most of the drawings are featuring people with distinctly chinese features who are depicted doing different daily activities like a bearded man with a cap biting a sugar cane (or bamboo) , an old man walking carrying what appears to be a gun or big stick. There are also paintings which show a group of people crossing a bridge on horseback under the shadow of a tall tree, a lord and his associates and a visit by a person on an elephant. There are some sequences of four paintings which convey a message or story about the character of people.

Many of the characters shown in the paintings of Xia Li are older, white haired to depict their age and are mostly male. In the one painting featuring a female character, she is shown wearing Chinese attire, with a flower in her hair, carrying a long stick, with an elderly white haired man who appears to be seated on a rock or boulder outdoors. Some of the paintings are featuring only a single person, usually a white haired person. Most of the paintings by Xia Li do not have a name, they are classified according to whether they depict a figure or tell a story, with few exceptions like the figure painting named as Bodhisattva , which depicts a balding bearded man wearing a robe.

Xia Li has become popular among art collectors in recent years after the sale of the painting Bodhisattva in 2014 at the the Modern Chinese painting and calligraphy auctions conducted by China Guardian Auctions at Beijing, China for $8424 which was 1624% more than the estimated price of the painting. A painting with the figure of a bearded landlord, with his bald white haired bearded advisor and capped associate was sold at Sincerity International Auctioneer, Taipei. However a figural painting which has been attributed to Xia Li sold at Michaan’s auction at slightly below the estimate, indicating the fluctuating prices of paintings. advertised on NDTV

Best Quality corner sofa beds and corner sofas

Building Childrens Furntiture 
Having glued and joined all T’s and L’s, the next step is to assemble these  joined sections together to complete the basic shape of the piece. 
It is best to do this without glue at first, assembling the entire unit with  screws alone. Then, when it is together in good order and you are satisfied that nothing is out of line, take it apart, clean and sand all the pieces to  prepare them for finishing, and reassemble the unit again, this time permanently with glue.
Though this method imposes some extra time and effort on your part, it makes  the sanding operation easier and better, and reassembly  goes  fast and   accurate  witheverything fitting back into place like a glove.
Furniture, in order to have good lines and smooth working drawers and doors, must be squared up during assembly before letting the glue-joined sections dry. 
In many cases, a large square will serve to check the accuracy of smaller  joined sections. On larger cabinets with big rectangular compartments, you  can check for squareness by measuring diagonally across the compartment opening  from corner to corner. Note this measurement and then measure the opposite  crossing diagonal in the same manner. You can also do very nice corner sofa
If the cabinet is square, the two measurements will be the same. If the  measurements differ, the piece is not square. To make it square, apply pressure on the corner that has the longer measurement until the cabinet has been  forced into a square shape and both diagonal measurements are the same.
You can make weby nice corner sofa bed from fabric or leather.
Having squared the cabinet, it is a good idea to tack the back panel on next  before making any doors or drawers, or doing any further work. The back panel  will serve to hold the cabinet in shape while adding the rest of the features  and, if necessary, it can be removed temporarily whenever it interferes with  work to be done.

Hysterical TV anchors destroy their credibility

Increasingly it is extremely difficult to watch national television, especially English news channels, because the television anchors are uniformly hysterical, screaming and do not provide balanced coverage of news. They keep on screeching loudly and behave like schoolteachers while those with an opposing point of view, especially from Kashmir are treated like kindergarten kids, to be shouted at. There are some times, when all the English news channels are showing exactly the same news which can be very boring.On one channel Karan Thapar was replaced by Anjana Om Kashyap for reasons not known, however the anchoring style is exactly the same for all English news channels
In comparison, local goa news is usually far more watchable, though the news anchors are mostly not as good looking or polished like the national tv channels, they are far more calm, and the same news is not repeated.

Ebay India sold to Flipkart, affect craft sellers

A major blow to those who selling craft and handmade items is the news that Ebay India is being sold to Flipkart as Ebay is exiting India. For many Indian internet users, especially those with art and craft items Ebay was the best and simplest way to sell online as there are relatively few formalities and documentation required, unlike most of the other websites which require a VAT or GST registration.
Ebay had a large number of sellers selling home made craft items like crochet earrings, purses , mobile pouches, baby accessories,and also raw material like coconut shells. Though Amazon is also listing items like cow dung, the process of selling on Amazon is far more complex as an ASIN number is required
A website which allows artists and craftspersons to sell their items with a low overhead will be popular

Great acting skills of fraud NTRO employee puneet made google competitor a doormat

Most engineers are fairly honest, if they do not know their classmate, they will say that they do not know her, only the shameless fraud ntro employee puneet was ruthless, shameless, devoid of humanity that he planned and executed a very great online, financial fraud, identity theft fraud for more than 7 years since 2010 to get some quick money, and also for career promotion
The shameless fraud ntro employee puneet was very great actor, conman, falsely claiming to know his btech 1993 ee classmate very well,so that he could steal her resume multiple times, make fake claims about her business to exploit her for the rest of her life,
Once the fraud puneet with his great acting managed to convince people that he was acting on behalf of his classmate, (who her actually hated) , her realized that he had won a lottery and ruthlessly exploited her to steal her resume, get government jobs for frauds like nayanshree, siddhi, sunaina, veena, ruchika, asmita patel, at the expense of his classmate who he treated as a doormat for his girlfriends . Others like j srinivasan, parmar, patel, vijay followed his footsteps
Now though the engineer is protesting loudly, the indian government continues to believe the fraud of the shameless cheater puneet without bothering to verify his claims , whether he has ever contacted his classmate in the last twenty four years, wasting a huge amount of indian tax payer money
The single woman engineer would have never agreed to the unfair deals made by the fraud puneet, yet he shamelessly misused her name, ruined her reputation to make her a doormat for his lazy greedy mediocre girlfriends, to greatly boost their careers. so brahmin cheater nayanshree does no work online at all, yet gets a monthly salary because the fraud puneet is making fake claims

Moon Hooch techno jazzer performances

From mailer received

Cult techno-jazzers Moon Hooch will return to the UK in June with shows in Brighton and London’s Omera on June 11th, and 12th respectively. Comprised of tenor saxophonist Mike Wilbur, baritone sax/bass clarinet Wenzl McGowen, and drummer James Muschler, the trio will deliver their high-energy, intoxicating sound, that merges elements of indie rock, virtuosic jazz and pulse-pounding electronic dance music with a DIY aesthetic.


So popular as student buskers on New York’s subways that the NYPD famously banned their impromptu shows as a public-order hazard, Moon Hooch have since gone from strength to strength; selling out major venues in the US, touring globally, and releasing their third album Red Sky in 2016. They took audiences by storm on this side of the Atlantic last year with dates throughout the UK/Europe, which included stand-out performances at the O2 Academy Islington and the Love Supreme Jazz Festival.


In addition to the summer dates, the band will release Live at the Cathedral on CD/DVD on June 30th on Hornblow Recordings, and more shows are expected to be announced in the autumn.
