Puzzles and Britto's Art



Just before Christmas we got on the subject of puzzles. Not exactly my forte. I can match up the colors but they’re almost too mathematical for me to fit together! After they’re started I can fit in a piece or two. For the most part I feel it’s unfair if I add pieces to an almost finished puzzle when others have done the majority of the work. So I back off!

Anyway, attracted to the art I bought this puzzle to slip under the tree The puzzles were pretty picked over. I’m guessing people are going back to more home entertainment with the economy such as it is!


Once the puzzle was completed I really enjoyed it sitting against my heart decorated table. Later I discovered the artist is the amazing pop culture phenomenon Romero Britto a very interesting fellow who you can read about here! Not only do celebrities possess some of his yummy works, he’s also contributed to over 1000 charitable organization world wide! Needless to say he is now one of my new favorites!!


Hankering to do another puzzle Pepper bought two more during January clearance. I must say not as eye appealing as the Britto. The new one hangs about an eight of an inch off the table and I keep bumping it with my large derriere…Well the first time my bum decided to eat the puzzle my princess freaked out. It’s happened several times since and each time I’m shocked. It’s become a standing joke, truthfully I can’t wait until this one’s completed and back in the box.


Yesterday I asked Bryan to bring the vacuum down stairs for me because of my knee. Knowing it would be me who vacuums, he checked under the table for puzzles pieces, finding a straggler from a previous puzzle. The boy knows me well. Just like checking in pants pockets before I do the wash, I often forget! It’s not likely I would have thought to look for puzzle pieces before I vacuum. I chuckled as I commended his forethought!
This is one of my Favorite Britto's

Thank you for introducing me to Romero Britto- I was not familiar with his work, it is FAB! Obviously I see a similarity in the way he looks at color and design- WOW, it's kind of weird.
