Liberty, Dry Martini by Yulia Drobova

A fun Liberty graphic art puzzle, “Dry Martini“, via Hoefnagel. I thought it might be a little difficult, with large areas of dark color, but the background actually has dark red blobs, on black, so the large swath is broken up quite a bit. I still ended up with a pile of dark colored pieces, […]

Sarah Gentry, Mel’s Belles, Liberty

I really enjoyed “Mel’s Belles” (who’s Mel, I wonder?) by Sarah Gentry, a Liberty puzzle of a bouquet of flowers, which came in a Hoefnagel pack along with the Rex Ray “Alistair” puzzle. I requested the pack because of Rex Ray, but ended up enoying the Sarah Gentry puzzle even more! Maybe I was just […]

Rex Ray’s “Alistair”, from Liberty

2/19: Finished! Super landscape! 1:2.5 ratio or so. Also, lots of Liberty-style human figural dancers, and musicians. Liberty: 2/17: Under way! “Alistair” by Rex Ray, Liberty Puzzles, about 550 pieces, via Hoefnagel. I love Rex Ray, so I was excited to request this puzzle from Hoefnagel, but now (having just started), I am feeling daunted!

finally finished! Some Things Are Scary by Liberty Puzzles

This Edward Gorey “Some Things Are Scary” image is one of my favorite images, so I was excited to get it as a Liberty Puzzle. So hard! Why was it so hard? My puzzle accomplice thinks it may be due to pieces having a similar pattern even when they had different, yet similar, shapes. Also, […]

Fall Bloom by Chris Huang, Liberty

Fall Bloom by Chris Huang, from Liberty Puzzles. A relatively quick and easy solve. I liked the variety of patterns in the art, and the Liberty-style whimsies, both single-piece and multi-piece. I really liked how all the arachnid whimsies were in the soil …. On the art … are all these trees with their roots […]

Darcie Reflected by Daria Hlazatova (Liberty)

“Darcie Reflected”, image by Daria Hlazatova, puzzle by Liberty — big puzzle! 607 pieces, 19×12.75″. This was from Hoefnagel …. Boy, this puzzle really kicked my ass. Red, and black, and lots of eyes … and mirrored (not exactly) left to right. Lots of fun whimsies — various human figurals, bats, snakes, and of course […]

Tannenwald by Klimt, by Liberty

Beautiful image by Klimt, and a fast & fun puzzle by Liberty. Weirdly, the whimsies in this cut were western-style figures … not tailored to this image. Still, a nice fast puzzle for me and Ash.

How the West Was One by Chris Huang

Liberty Puzzles, 510 pieces. I really enjoyed this one – nice image, pleasantly occupying with mixes and repeats of textures and colors. Lots of fun whimsies, and a bunch of really nice multi-piece whimsies. I especially loved the buffalo (inside the buffalo, and well-colored, too!) and the woman playing guitar ….
