puzzle 43:  Village scene from Linda Nelson Stocks "2009 Folk Art Calendar"

piece count: 351

measured size: ?

date cut: 22 May 09

notables: signature piece, color line cut

disposition: gift to Maya

This is the largest puzzle (from a piece count perspective) I’ve ever cut.  It’s a normal size calendar image, which I typically cut into about 300 pieces, so these pieces are generally on the smaller size.  I don’t know anything about Linda Nelson Stocks, but her paintings really lend themselves to color line cutting.  By cutting out the people, I’ve created little figurals without going through the trouble of making and using a pattern.
