    That’s the oil on mahogany. I pointed to the oil on canvas in my comment. There is also a much smaller oil on panel (private collection) that Christie’s auctioned December, 2016. Maybe others.

  5. 1 day ago on For Better or For Worse

    https://fborfw.com/strip_fix/

    shows a 2nd paragraph:

    I have no idea where the idea for this strip came from, except that it seemed like a good gag at the time—and if I was to do it again, I’d change the colour. I think it would look better if the word “Worse” was in turquoise and if Mike had a deep turquoise shirt! Otherwise, it still looks OK!

    I actually didn’t try that (figuring that it would point to all sorts of garden webpages); but, when I did, it actually pointed to a webpage that I hadn’t seen and added to Notes in the first URL in my comment below; so, Thanks!!

    P.S. By my count, including the multiple (up to 4, so far) works in some strips, and excluding the repeats, this is the 2,000th work of art shown by this comic strip.

    Again, 10 years ago, Richard posted a blog entry along with this strip:

    http://richardspooralmanac.blogspot.com/2009/05/pop-pop-synchronicity.html

    He was kind enough to post the other linked strip’s image there; its author perhaps pointed to this in a comment at his strip (can’t say for sure, since embedded hyperlinks, which were legal in GoComics comments back then, are now inactive within the comment):
