Mind gone blank, Jackie?

Artist is KISS, or at least it's there in the first sentence. But I confess no knowledge of the song titles...leave them to youse guys.

PS Luke - look for invisible text...

Okay. If it isn't, then you put a red herring in, too! Which also accounts for my not finding any works by KISS in the rest of the onnicle.

Now I see your artist, John Singer Sargent

Still don't know any names of his works, without looking them up.

Also I see a tennis player there, [Matina] HINGIS. I guess this is one hazard of writing complex paragraphs - with that much "junk DNA" there's likely to be an occasional viable mutation in there somewhere by accident!

Just drag your cursor over the blank area and the text will appear, Luke.

Okay, folks, let's clear up something: looking things up is not "cheating" in this game. Jackie has correctly stated that the artist, in this case, is a painter.

Feel free to solve the puzzle, anyone. Let's not hold to the original "rule" that the solver had to post the new puzzle. Let's just have some fun!

Thanks, CB; I presume you are referring to my drawing my
cursor over Jackie's blank post. I've done that and
nothing happens, which is why I thought she forgot
something. Still does not work even after your suggestion.
Thanks anyway, I guess, for trying to help.

Aha! Thank you Jackie.
@ Luke. Coffeebean must be a magician. Just hit the 'quote' button of the blank post and you'll see the text.

Right, got the painter, now for the works.

@Luke: hold the mouse left-button down as you drag the cursor over the post, and any invisible text under your dragged area will be highlighted in relief.

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.)
