This puzzle was a pleasure to assemble, the gorgeous colors and exceptional fit made for a great time. Doesn’t this look like a great spot for a getaway?
The picture above doesn’t do this puzzle justice, the image is absolutely beautiful and the colors are stunning. I would have liked to have the artist’s name somewhere on the box; I searched every inch of it and nowhere is credit given to the artist. If I were an artist that licensed my work to be made into a puzzle I would definitely want credit for it! Thank goodness for the internet, with the name of the painting it was easy to find the name of the artist and I can at least give him credit here.
Most of the Milton Bradley puzzles I’ve assembled so far have been very good quality. Their pieces are a good thickness, they have a very good variety of piece shapes and the fit is excellent. The image reproduction is excellent as well and in general I’ve been thoroughly impressed with their puzzles.
I’m not always in the right frame of mind for an image like this one, but Sunset Over a Busy Day was just what I needed. The sky was easy to start with, and the dock and cabin offered enough of a challenge to keep it from being too easy. I find that my moods directly affect the type of puzzles I choose to assemble. I haven’t completely figured it out yet, which moods prefer which puzzles – all I know is some days I won’t even consider a certain puzzle and a few days later that same puzzle is exactly what I’m looking for.
Perhaps that means that it’s pretty important for me to have a very good variety of puzzles to choose from. So mom keep up that thrift store shopping, my ever-changing moods require a wide variety of interesting puzzles to choose from. ☺

Yes Ma’am! I’m on the job!
That’s what I like to hear!
how was the sky easy to start with? it’s all purple with only some slight color variations….
It wasn’t difficult, at least not for me. Sometimes I like starting with the more solid colored areas, like sky or grass. I find it soothing to make sense of it and put the pieces together.
It is like a relaxing moment…
It’s a beautiful puzzle. 🙂
Stacey, if you enjoy Milton Bradley puzzles, the Tuesday Morning stores stock lots of them (it’s the main brand they sell, in fact) at about 40% off as their regular price. The price for a 1000-piece MB puzzle is generally $5.99.
Thanks Sam! I’ve blown my puzzle budget for the time being but I’ll check it out next time I’m puzzle shopping.
