I love to paint - houses, garages, window frames, anything like that.

I don't think I'm much of an artist - so the cat and the cow/moon came from a coloring book page - the rest is out of my head.

I used to help paint children's puzzles but hadn't done that in a long time. Last fall I got the bug to paint puzzles again (you can see one as my entry under the woodworking board.)

I had this painting finished when I was going through the fair book at catagories to enter when I found "painting on wood" and thought this would be another catagory I could enter.

Since I didn't have a puzzle frame for it (or time to cut it) I just put it in a picture frame. I had planned on taking it out and making it a puzzle, but have heard so many comments about it that now I am thinking of just leaving it as is and selling it as a picture for a child's room. What do you think?

Please understand I am not trying to sell this item on this forum, I go to shows to sell my stuff. I am ONLY looking for comments/criticisms from other crafters.
Thanks.

Would it be a good idea to try taking it to your next show, and if it doesn't sell, then turn it into a puzzle? I don't do shows, so I don't know if that is a bad idea, but it sounds good to me!
