The mention of jigsaw -related artwork led me to dig out this from my loft. It is a 1000 piece puzzle of a painting by David Wright, entitled "Summer Showers". (railway art connection!) Not normally my area of expertise, but I have decided to have a dabble.

I never realised "jigsawing" was so fiddly! Progress is slow.
