    There may have been a few strips that lead up to that (Poncho being disgraced by Carmen or one of her cats — I don’t have time for a search right now); but, yes, that’s the gist of this arc: find a dog lover to replace Carmen.

    Once again, so far, this isn’t in the list of works, by this artist, in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Girl in a Large Hat painting is shown, with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, by its current-location page.

    More item details in the Google translated Dutch page provides a description. It says the painting was acquired (has description; auction result has different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, alternate title, and detailed painting description) December 9, 2009.

    Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here. The artist’s (click next for, currently, this — another description, and 3 more of his works) Wikipedia page and collection (more under Subcategories).

    First time one of his works has been shown here.

    Once again, so far, this isn’t in the list of works, by this artist, in Mr. Melcher’s blog. A slightly-different-coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here. A smaller image is pointed to here.

    The nearly-life-size Antiquated Music (Portrait of Sarah Sagehorn Frishmuth) painting is shown, with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, by its current-location page.

    A detailed description starts at the bottom of page 460 of an online book preview.

    She was, among other things, a collector of musical instruments, donating one to the Smithsonian in 1906, and writing a Stringed Instruments article for a current-location publication in 1905. She also wrote an Old Samplers article for that publication in 1906. The artist/teacher/photographer’s Wikipedia page and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    Fifth, of the 6 other works (list link above), by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here (6 so far).

    Once again, so far, this isn’t in the list of works, by this artist, in Mr. Melcher’s blog. A slightly-different-coloration, enlarged image can be found here.

    The Love Letter is privately owned. It is shown, with that coloration, click-to-enlarge image, by its last auction attempt page (didn’t sell).

    The artist used that title in at least 5 other works; more details about 2 of them (click image for click-to-enlarge)

    A somewhat enlarged image can be found at the only work, by this artist, so far, to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog (yesterday).

    Unconscious of Danger is shown, with a different coloration, framed image (click-to-humongous, unframed image), and described, by its current-location page. According to the Provenance, it was purchased (has another different coloration image) December 4, 2003.

    Another different coloration image can be found here, along with several other works by this artist. An online contest entry took it a step farther (also changed her extended hand position, click for page showing full size)

    Second time, that a work by this artist has appeared here.

    In Darby’s never ending quest to find why he started this strip in the first place, skipping over 2005 (nothing important there), we are now in the year 2004.
