    Sorry about the internet. Hope you didn’t lose any edits. About my comment yesterday, I only meant it looked like you had put a lot of work/creativity into that poster.

    I believe you meant was the first & (perhaps still the) best. Sadly, she passed away in 2007, almost 8 years ago to the day.

    I wonder if this is how Michael Jackson’s wardrobe accessory got started.

    Those look like marshmallows on the end table; so, even though chocolate is bad for dogs, I think he’s drinking hot cocoa, not soup, in P5. But, I could be wrong. Yes, soup is good food.

    Didn’t keep much from the original. The bicycle made me think of the poster from a different movie.

    For anyone who doesn’t already know, Sparky’s dad was a barber.

    Once again, so far, no work, by this artist, has appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog (if that changes, the first link will list them). A somewhat enlarged image can be found here.

    The Glow Worm is, as far as I can tell, privately owned.

    A different coloration image, emphasizing the worm, can be found here, while another, found here (the one found here even more so), makes it look like this is a daylight scene (prominent shadow behind her dress).

    My guess is the strip image is closer to reality (glow worms not as prominent during the day). The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection (more under Subcategories).

    First work, by this artist, to appear here.

    A somewhat enlarged image can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry (yesterday). Again, it is a cropped image. An image of the full painting can be found here.

    Peasant Holding a Bridle (Portrait of Mina Moiseyev) isn’t, as far as I can tell, shown online by its current-location.

    A different coloration enlarged image can be found here. Another can be found, starting here. The artist did another portrait of him (click for click-to-humongous)


    shown by its Google Cultural Institute page. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated Russian Wikipedia page has more) and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    Fourth, of the 6 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
