Fascinating and humbling. I loved jigsaw puzzles at one time but can't imagine even starting one of these puzzles with their color-line cutting and non-standard piece shapes. And the idea of not even having the finished picture as a guide!
By the way, I considered my jigsaw puzzle solving hours as a pleasant but nonproductive pastime until I began oil painting. It was then that the art of subtle color matching came back to me from my jigsaw days and helped me create different tones.

Dear Ann. Thank you for your comment. I am fascinated to hear about both your puzzle assembling and its influence on your oil painting. Both are worthwhile pursuits! I really appreciate hearing from you and thank you for reading my blog.
