Dimensions: 40 cm x 33 cm
Piece Count: 551
Difficulty: 4 out of 5
Julie is known for her use of bold color and sharp contrast in her prairie and foothills inspired art. It was her dynamic skies that drew me to her work and ultimately led to a local artist collaboration. After sharing a few HDR photos for inspiration Julie was able to meld the bold fluidity depicted in her cloud-filled skies, into the earth-bound landscapes seen in typical Alberta Badlands morphology.
Beyond the creation of a stunning art piece, our goal was to provide a backdrop for a dinosaur-themed puzzle. The experience of solving a StumpCraft jigsaw puzzle is very much akin to that of a paleontologist. Enjoy sifting through the dinosaur bones and see how many species you can recognize and discover!
Made in Canada.
This was a beautiful and challenging puzzle. Lots of fascinating and delightful pieces.
Another Beautiful and Fun Puzzle!
This was another challenging but fun puzzle to build. The picture was beautiful too.
This was my first StumpCraft puzzle that I bought during the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. I was looking for a challenging and unique puzzle, and this was it! I love this brand of puzzles and have bought several more since.
Beautifully crafted and so much fun.
Julie deBoer's stunning painting lends itself well to puzzling. The collaboration with Stumpcraft has created a stunning piece of art with truly wonderful whimsy pieces and the whole family can enjoy. Any fossil hunters and dinosaur fans will have lots of fun with this puzzle. The quality is world class. Love that this company is focused on showcasing Canadian artist. So much talent here. Can't wait to do more!
Beautiful painting turned puzzle!
Not only were there amazing dinosaur themed pieces, I also loved the archeology theme as well. The finished puzzle was so beautiful to look at. These puzzles are always so fun to do. I plan to continue to add to my collection.
