Tom Thomson (Canadian, 1877–1917)
Byng Inlet, Georgian Bay, 1914–1915
Tom Thomson, an avid outdoorsman and backcountry guide, had a brief but brilliant art career profoundly influenced by the Canadian landscape. Thomson loved exploring Ontario's north country, recording his impressions of the wilderness in small oil sketches full of vivid color and bold brushwork. The painting reproduced for this 500-piece puzzle is a stunning depiction of the water, land, trees, and sky of Byng Inlet. But it also captures a moment when we can practically feel and hear the wind.
Very difficult. But a good challenge.
I spent many summers in Georgian Bay and this made me feel like I was there again.
Lovely puzzle pieces, a bit harder than it looks like. Pleasure to do.
the trees and background tough to do. Looked good when done
Very challenging - especially for a 500 piece puzzle.
This is a very difficult puzzle because the colors are hard to distinguish. I had to resort to sorting by shape. I'm an experienced puzzler, but this one was a real challenge.
I love puzzles created from amazing art. I really wish I had not given this one away. It was challenging and very gratifying to complete.
