A Jigsaw Challenge

I love jigsaw puzzles. My kids brought a 1000 piece puzzle of Gustav Klimt's The Kiss to the house we rented last week in Sunriver. I stayed up twice through the night working on it and almost got it done before we had to head home.

Working on puzzles is a great way to study the details of a painting - the variations of the values, hues, and texture. This one was a real challenge but very satisfying to get so many pieces in the right spots. Another way to better understand and appreciate what the artist has achieved!
