First Puzzles

OK, so I spent naptime scanning in my old puzzle photos. A walk down memory lane for me! Here are some first ones for me. The fish is cut with fir plywood. I learned about birch for the turtle, duck and chicken. Too bad I was so into that high gloss acrylic paint. I much prefer the washed out acrylic look and have even switched to children's watercolors in the last year. The three at the top are from the Scroll Saw Pattern book - Patrick Spielman and the fish is adapted from a free pattern that is no longer posted.


  1. I am really impressed by what an artist you are Karen!!! I could never do anything like that. I especially like the puzzles above. Good for you!

  2. Thanks for your kind words! I have a lot of fun making them.
