Thie pic of a primitive style painting of Paris has been in my home for 45 years. I only just started doing puzzles for a hobby. I chose this eeBoo puzzle because it reminded me of the painting. I also chose eeBoo being impressed by a round 500 piece puzzle I completed. (Crazy Bug Bouquet, bright, colorful, cheerful, made me smile) ) Like that one, this ribbon cut puzzle has a shiny surface. The pieces fit nicely where they belonged, sometimes with a snap as pushed into place. I was challenged, but in a satisfying way. Once done I left it on my board for days -- not only to enjoy my accomplishment but to admire the artwork. The last pieces were some of the green leaves and some of the sky. It was great to place the 1000th piece — no missing pieces here. One interesting tidbit, one I did not realize when I bought it — this is / was the only rectangular puzzle in eBoo’s wonderful collection. This puzzle measures 21” x 28”. Their 1000 piece square puzzles measure 23” x 23”. For me, that meant the pieces were a bit larger - a good thing for a newbie! Thank you eeBoo!
