Paul HeussenstammFourth-generation artist Paul Heussenstamm (American, b. 1949) grew up in a home filled with art and books. Conversations about spirituality engaged his family and their guests. Through his studies and travels he witnessed the beauty and diversity of life and the subtle inner unity among all beings. Dozens of trips to Hawaii imprinted on him the lush colors that would later be reflected in his artwork. A surfer since the age of 12, Heussenstamm became a successful businessman and owner of Newport Surf & Sport, a fixture of the California surfing scene. In his midthirties he began to paint. Since then, he has created thousands of unique and spiritual paintings, and the mandala has become his signature motif. Heussenstamm regularly leads workshops around the world and at his Laguna Beach, California, studio.
I find the challenge to reward ratio perfect with this 500 piece puzzle. I had been doing 1000 piece puzzles, but found they took too long and weren’t as much fun...
Well - there went the first version of my review into the ether!
I only remarked that I love Heussenstamm’s colors, and am looking forward to working the Mandala Fruit Tree as soon as the season calms down!
Also, everything in that order arrived in perfect condition, as is normal for Pomegranate. I so admired the masterful job someone did of packing my order. Do you train your people initially on jigsaw puzzles?? :blush: Pomegranate is The Best!
This puzzle is lovely to look at! The blues in the background were an adequate challenge and the detail I love the most is in the trunk and branches of the tree.
