Television Paintings
Contest Directions: November 21 is a World Television Day, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1998. World Television Day is meant to pay tribute to the invention and use of television as means of information transmission, and increase the awareness of a vital role television plays in the modern world. Meanwhile, the sales of classic CRT (cathode-ray tube) TVs are dropping fast in favor of LCD and plasma TVs, and analysts predict that CRT TVs may completely disappear from American shop shelves in the next 24 months. The same thing happened with VCRs when DVD players took over years ago.
To pay a tribute to good old CRT (cathode-ray tube) TV technology which started the TV era, photoshop CRT (cathode-ray tube) type of TVs in any paintings or drawings. Here's a good example.

          Red 'X' Society·Wednesday, March 1, 2017

          SACRAMENTO,California--In America, it has long been held that there is a sacred bond between the United States Government, and the People of the United States.

          That bond is the unbendable document called the Constitution of the United States, and, as I am about to embark, this bond has been broken by the Corruption of Our Central Bodies of Government, Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, Agency, and the Press.
          This means that while Americans have been kept busy with the non-essential, info-tainment of the Press, both Print and Broadcast, these bodies along with all key positions in the Government of the United States, have been subverted and replaced with loyalist Felons and Street Prostitutes as legitimate Journalists, Political Appointees, Judges, and even Entertainment Personnel.

          This means that along with the Silent Subversion of the 1st Amendment of Our Constitution, a facade of disinformation has cloaked the atrocity with unfounded fears of the necessity to increase the National Security risks assessed to convince the Citizens of the United States that loss of their personal freedoms, restriction on travel, and the production of “Fake News” in warranted to maintain the Secrecy of the Criminal Enterprise Our Government has become.

          I became aware of this situation in quite an unconventional manner.

          As I have described over the past 8 years, to United States Government agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Congress, the United States Senate, and News Media alike, without material response, I met over 150 Pimps, Prostitutes, and Individuals involved in criminal acts in the related to the before mentioned street crimes on the streets of Sacramento, California during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.

          Since my involvement with these persons over a 7 year period, 2 of the persons involved in narcotics use and prostitution have become Presidents of the United States of America.

          With the addition of a First Lady, a Supreme Court Justice, State Senator, City Mayor, and County District Attorney of Sacramento, there are nearly 150 persons that have been placed, appointed, hired, or infiltrated into the Newsrooms of America.
          One could look at this as a miracle of some great proportion, but in fact, the pattern sings of racketeering, espionage, and the criminal manipulation of All Avenues of Control and Command of the United States Government and the Media.

          And, after engaging in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America ...I find this UN-Acceptable!
          The Red ‘X’ Society was formed as an Idea, to redress this wrong, and hold those accountable for this Horrific Tragedy of United States Government Miss-Management, and urge All Americans to display the Red ‘X’ until this matter is resolved in accordance with the written word of the U.S. Constitution.

        • I see somebody gave it a 1. This person probably has Ad Block plugin for FireFoix - this plugin blocks all images with names like this entry has.

          It's a quality work, but some voters might not see it due to ad blocking program.
        • No troubles NewsMaster. Every day we have 1st, 2nd and 3rd places...and the last place too.

          I recognize this is not a good job; don't knows if deserves to get just '1', but...anyway, we stay in a fight, and we need to get a last position too.

          Is a game rule, isn't?

This contest is fueled by the following news: Paintings in history and Edgar Degas innovations: Degas' art is inherited with the combination of beauty, sometimes fantastic, and prosaic. Fascinated by the diversity and mobility of urban life, he writes of his time in Paris (streets, theaters, cafes, horse racing) in ever changing aspects. The works of Degas, with their strictly verified composition (asymmetric, having a dynamic fragmentariness of film frame), with their precise and flexible pattern, unexpected angles, shapes and active interaction of space (often, as it was inverted onto a plane), combined with the seemingly open-mindedness and chance for a thorough reasoning and exact assessment. Degas aspired for maximum "realism" or "naturalism" of his works. Despite the fact that these two terms are often interchangeable, in fact, naturalism was a more progressive form of realism, since it is enriched with the latest achievements of science. The writer and journalist Edmond Du rand, a friend of Degas, persistently called friends to follow the discoveries of science, to use innovations so that the art of the artist kept pace with the times. The manner in which Degas followed this scientific realism can be illustrated by his attitude to demonstrate the works in the exhibitions of impressionists. By posting all the paintings of each artist in the rooms with intimate colors, with walls painted in unusual colors, the effects of which complement the picture, and prolonging the evening visiting hours, when the gas lamps are lit, Degas and his colleagues created the effects, acting in accordance with the latest discoveries of optical physics. Like other Impressionists, Degas attached great importance to frames, he designed their color and shapes. As explained later by Claude Monet, Degas did this so as to "make the frame help the creation and supplement it", thus reinforcing the color. Degas even specially stipulated that the frame of his paintings should not be changed. When one day he saw his picture was inserted into the regular cast gilt frame, in rage he bought it. The fact that Degas was fond of technological inventions is shown by his prints, he also used a new and traditional, for example, tempera and pastel-based adhesives instead of butter. Both of these materials dry or quick-drying, non-transparent, allowing Degas to easily make changes in his compositions (and to mask). Using their expressive potential for illustrating the world of contemporary opera and café chantants, Degas became convinced that the fragility of these materials could not be better suited for the fleeting pleasures of the performing arts.
