Sound of Soul Strings

Are you a lover of Picasso’s Cubism?Sound of Soul Strings Marcella Hayes Muhammad Or African – American art? Or music? If you love one or more of those types of art, then you will love this puzzle entitled Sound of Soul Strings and all of artist Marcella Hayes Muhammad’s work.

She says on her website [MaruvaDQ.com]that she was influenced by Pablo Picasso’s Cubism which shows the linear influence of light on objects. She decided to model her own style of art after his, calling it “Plastic Space”. It is a “form of  abstraction that explores the curvature of light around objects.”

Assembling this gorgeous example of abstract art can be inspiring for those who love art and love music. As the piano keys swirl around the stringed instrument, it can remind a musician of how beautiful music swirls around a person engulfing the listener and player in the music. As you and your loved ones assemble it, listening to a beautiful violin concerto would be a perfect way to relax and renew. You can find it and other SunsOut jigsaw puzzles at A+ Puzzles, Etc.

Before the Big Game

Before the Big Game by Bob PettesWhile some people think of building snowmen and going skiing or ice skating during winter, others think of SPRING TRAINING! In the middle of February, pitchers and catchers report to training camp in Arizona and Florida.  Position players report a few days later. The teams that go to the camp in Arizona are referred to as the Cactus League and those that go to the camp in Florida are called the Grapefruit League.

For lovers of Major League Baseball in North America, this is an exciting time. After a three month hiatus of “America’s Pastime”, knowing that training has started means that the new season [which starts the first week of April] can’t be too far away.

Some fans will even spend their spring break at one of the training camps. This enables them to see the players closer up and have easier access to get players’ autographs. For those who cannot make it to either camp, assembling this jigsaw puzzle entitled Before The Big Game can be a great way to spend time while waiting for the beginning of April. You can find this and other SunsOut jigsaw puzzles at A+ Puzzles, Etc.

Wolves in the Snow

Wolves in the Snow by Al AgnewLovers of nature and of wild animals, such as these wolves, will thoroughly enjoy this painting by naturalist Al Agnew for its noble take on these creatures.

Since wolves are predators of smaller animals and livestock, humans in North America historically have not well tolerated the proud, powerful animals. But with the publishing of a Canadian booked entitled Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat in 1963, attitudes and opinions started to change.

As you and your loved ones assemble this puzzle, you can use the scenery to inspire yourself to think more about these noble creatures. You can find it and other Wolf Jigsaw Puzzles at A+ Puzzles, Etc.

Winter Reflections

This Winter Reflectionsdelightful picture of children having fun in the snow reminds me of visiting my aunt’s farm in northwest Indiana every winter. Snow would drift everywhere while my cousins and I would try to see how much excitement in the snow we could possibly squeeze in before the sun set. We never tried to build a bonfire or go ice skating but we had a lot of enjoyment building a snow man inside our snow fort. Then we would warm up with some delicious hot cocoa that my aunt provided for us. Great fun!

Winter Turkey Tracks

winter-turkey-tracksAs I look at this picturesque winter scene of some turkeys foraging for their dinner, I am curious to know what they are eating. According to Wikipedia, wild turkeys are omnivores meaning that they eat both plants and animals. They forage in undergrowth in the forests or in shrubbery looking for grasses, berries, acorns and other nuts, seeds, roots, insects and sometimes small reptiles. These turkeys here, in this puzzle entitled “Winter Turkey Tracks” by Daniel Christ, must have found a delicious feast for so many of them to forage together under these leaves. But they better move soon or else the approaching train will ensure that they will be a delicious dinner for someone else!

Second Thoughts

TitlesSecond Thoughts of paintings are always interesting; some are even intriguing. This one is an example of an intriguing title because it causes one to wonder in a deeper way how this scene will play out. As both groups stop to look back at the other, each one stands indecisively wondering what to do. While wolves are the natural predators of moose, moose are large and can act aggressively if threatened. I wonder which one finally made the first move?

This would be a good topic of discussion for you and your loved ones to have as you assemble this puzzle entitled “Second Thoughts”. You can find it and other Sunsout Jigsaw Puzzles at A+ Puzzles, Etc.

They Come Bearing Gifts

The title of this jigsaw puzzle they-come-bearing-giftsrefers to the  Magi, or “Wise Men” who came from the East [Persia, maybe?] to visit the Christ Child who had just been born in Bethlehem. The book of Matthew in the New Testament of the Bible, the second chapter says this –

“In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.” … When they had heard the king, they set out; and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. 11 On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road.”
