In the meantime I'm at six works now, speed it up searchers!

Good.
Seven works by Singer Sargent:

Boston Public Library
Robert Louis Stevenson
A morning Walk
Hills of Gallilee
Jerusalem
A Hotel Room
General Officers of the Great war

That was fun Coffeebean! Here's a nice link to Sargent's Paintings. This outcome would not have been possible without the hints given.

My post too, like this stuff here.

(The comma at the end of a sentence, where there should have been a period, may be a hint that it's not a typo, it's someone trying to be clever.)



GREAT, thanks. Your's worked "like this stuff here" it
says. But nothing appears on Jackie's. Thanks.

So glad you enjoyed it! I had fun writing it, and enjoyed scrolling through that very website.

A Morning Walk is my favorite! To see them in person some day... [sigh!]

@wofa -- don't think I could name any songs by KISS either! LOL

Congratulations BranShea...well played.
I didn't know artist at all...though there was something familiar about his 'Siesta' painting.

Your story was very good Coffeebean, it must have taken hours of research...thanks for the game.

;-) Must have been a long scroll then, I lost patience and changed to searching on Sargent Singer + some words I suspected of possibly being the title of a painting. That worked. Thanks again.

Confess I only saw Sargent; I didn't even SEE the Singer! Good eye, Branny!

Luke, you scared me half to death; it would altogether too likely if I had posted a blank! But running my cursor over both my post and your quote box reveals the text to me. I wonder why it doesn't work for you? (But then, anyone here who has known me for a while knows that I always think other peoples' screens show the same things mine does.)

Yes, well sorry for the scare.
But nothing appears yet at this late date in either
your original post or my quote of it. So it is another
example of "things that go bump in the night" on this site.

Ah, sorry I forgot the John. We always only called him Singer Sargent.
