Art buyers and collectors have many ways to acquire contemporary works of art, especially by living artists. Since surrealism and realism, I almost hate painting process itself because it’s so slow – 2 days for a small ACEO miniature (2.5 x 3.5 inches) to sometimes months for large paintings like “Till the end of time”. The reward of this pain comes greatly when the painting is ready. Yes is true, the joy of picture I have done disappears eventually, but it lasts much longer and gives me much more satisfaction and gives me a complete feeling and confidence that I’m really an artist. I didn’t see much difference between me and a carpet designer when I was abstractionist (forgive me carpet designers).

One of the most renowned artists of modern times, Andrew Wyeth continues to hold the American public enthrall with his almost photographic quality paintings. Sound Recording and Reproduction is an electrical, mechanical, electronic, or digital inscription and re-creation of sound waves, such as spoken voice, singing, instrumental music, or sound effects. The two main classes of sound recording technology are Analog Recording and Digital Recording Acoustic analog recording is achieved by a microphone diaphragm that can detect and sense the changes in atmospheric pressure caused by acoustic sound waves and record them as a mechanical representation of the sound waves on a medium such as a phonograph record (in which a stylus cuts grooves on a record). In magnetic tape recording, the sound waves vibrate the microphone diaphragm and are converted into a varying electric current, which is then converted to a varying magnetic field by an electromagnet, which makes … Read the rest

Generally speaking, the mechanism for generating the human voice can be subdivided into three parts; the lungs, the vocal cords within the larynx (voice box), and the articulators. The lung, the pump” must produce adequate airflow and air pressure to vibrate vocal cords. The vocal cords then vibrate to use airflow from the lungs to create audible pulses that form the laryngeal sound source. Actually cords” is not really a good name, because they are not string at all, but rather flexible stretchy material more like a stretched piece of balloon. The correct … Read the rest
