Finished! Whew!

November 14, 2020

This was a bear. I don’t know exactly why…looking at it here, it looks like it’d be pretty straight forward. But it wasn’t. I think the tiny detail made assembling so much of it difficult. The dresses were easier, but once they were done, it was maximum tedium… especially all the shades of black. Lordy.

Still… I love a good jigsaw puzzle.

I saw two Archibald Motley paintings at the Art Institute in Chicago last summer and loved them. I was so pleased Vicki Smith just happened to have a Motley puzzle.

It started as something to fill the downtime between calls during the flurry of phone banking in the last few weeks. It proved, however, to be too difficult to puzzle and phone bank at the same time!

Just finished today…
