Oceanside Retreat

Oceanside Retreat by David M – Milton Bradley – 300 pieces

Oceanside Retreat is a very pretty puzzle that was a nice calming assembly. It was just what I needed at just the right time.

300 to 500 pieces seems to be my sweet spot these days, and I’m enjoying these puzzles very much. There’s something very calming about this image, and I would probably enjoy it in a 500 or even 1000 piece. There’s something about the colors and the blends, it’s just relaxing and soothing to look at.

I couldn’t figure out what was going on in the upper window of the house, I had to ask several family members what they thought. Now that they’ve all weighed in, I can absolutely see it and can’t believe I didn’t see it before! It’s a mother holding a baby and giving it a kiss. So sweet!

I’m running out of 300 and 500 piece puzzles to do, either I need a shopping trip or a visit from my friendly neighborhood thrift store ninja!

    I didn’t think I would enjoy puzzles like this very much over time, but I’ve absolutely fallen in love with similar images from Charles Wysocki and a couple of other similar artists.

    Working a 300-piece puzzle right now myself of a bunch of flowers and leaves, etc., nothing else. Not sure that I would want to do this same image in a larger puzzle, but it is perfect for 300 pieces, and it’s a nice break while I get back into the rhythm of building puzzles.
