Seeing Puzzles Everywhere

Yesterday I was browsing through my friends’ Instagram posts when one caught my eye.

I think I focused on all the wrong things in his post because all I could think was, “Hey! His phone’s background is an Eric Dowdle Folk Art painting!” I think he just chose it because it’s a cool image of our local college sports stadium, but still—all I could think was, “I wonder if he does puzzles?”

Have you guys ever been out and about in every day life and recognized a painting or an artist’s work because you’ve become so familiar with them as puzzle images?

Puzzles have so many benefits! Now we can be the art “experts” in our group of friends, too! 🙂

    yes – I had no idea some of the puzzle pictures were actually ‘art’ – like old art that I should have been familiar with! also finding I”m liking different artitsts for different reasons – one artist I even found online and he sold me 2 of his prints(Dan Hatala) because I couldn’t find them for sale anywhere and they reminded me of my dad

    even worse – I keep seeing pictures/scenes/advertisements and think ‘that would make a cool puzzle’!
