    The Serenade

    all have info about this artist (who I still believe died in 1931). So far, 16 works (17 times, including 1 repeat) by him have been used here.

    has the prior work, like this, another of the several he did while in Venice:

    My comment at that prior strip pointed to that and the artist info URLs.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #2095 (December 5, 2018) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment.

    “Another one of his damn original songs. Why can’t he just do ‘Margaritaville’ like everyone else?”

    Try not to make eye contact. Hey, Gertrude, stop looking at him!

    The two sitting got so engrossed in their conversation, they didn’t realize they’d knitted the Bayeux Tapestry.

    “That song has a catchy beat, but what’s a ‘Y-M-C-A’?”

    I don’t think it is excessive; he did say that the biggest merkin would win.

    I don’t think he’ll be a problem for long. I think he and Gertrude are fixin’ta head off behind the wood shed. (It’s why they call it the “wood shed”.)
