    Here's my latest. It's the puzzle of Robert Bateman's painting of "Spotted Owl" I have the print of it too, but wanted to make it come to life through working a puzzle.
    Of course, the print is better, but the puzzle was so much fun!

    That's a nice one, Cathy. I belong to a FB group, Owls of New England, and I really enjoy the owl pics.

    Sounds like a neat FB group! I didn't realize just how much I liked owls, until I realized that so many of my puzzle choices were owls. I just wish we had more of them and more of a variety of them around here.
    But around here, it seems that the choices for land are bulldoze it and build huge developments........which isn't the choice habitat of owls......or lots of other creatures.

    I still have some unopened owl puzzles. Owl puzzles can be really hard to put together because of the funky direction of all the different feathers. But what a beautiful finished puzzle it makes!

    The puzzles I make end up looking much better from a distance, as you can't see all the lines of the pieces. I'm running out of wall space!

    Ok. Here's my latest one. Carl Brenders is another wildlife artist I like. I found this puzzle of one of his images, called "Hidden in the Pines". It's of 2 young great horned owls. I was a little concerned when I received it, because it was made in China. This is the first one that wasn't made in the U.S. I wrote the company of my concern about the dyes used, etc., and they assured me that they monitor all that comes out of this place. Anyhow......it was the most well-made puzzle I've done to date. It was made by "Master Pieces". The pieces were extremely strong and made in all different shapes. It was very challenging and towards the end I always start to panic that they've left some pieces out......but they were all there.
    I would like to do more from this company, but I don't see any other images there that I like. But it was an incredibly well made puzzle.

    That's lovely, Cathy. I really enjoy the irregularly shaped pieces.
